Public art signage project celebrates Yorkshire Dales

Last month, 16 stunning boundary signs commissioned by FrancisKnight on behalf of Craven District Council for Great Place: Lakes & Dales were sensitively installed in the beautiful landscape - in place for the 2019 Cycling World Road Championships on 22nd September. Created by Yorkshire photographic artist Mary Woolf and produced by Morelock Signs in Wolverhampton, the signs, on key roads, were part of a project with Craven District Council and Great Place: Lakes & Dales to mark the Craven district boundary and celebrate the distinctiveness of the breathtaking landscape. In exploring the district, Mary became interested in the ridges and skylines, creating a panoramic view that is split into four along the N/E/S/W lines, from which she produced 4 signage designs that depict the outstanding natural beauty of the areas highlighting Bentham, Buckden, Skipton and Wigglesworth all with their own distinct key features.
