Based in Lee Quarry in Rossendale, 'Ferroterrasaurus' is inspired by industrial machinery and skeletal detailing and provides a 'drop off' obstacle for trial bikers. The work is one of three sculptures that celebrate both Rossendale's stone quarrying heritage and the dramatic natural landscape of Lee Quarry and the surrounding area as part of the Valley of Stone project. Mountain bike and trail riders were invited to a workshop to help design the piece and ensure the interactive aspect of the sculpture complemented the mountain bike trails and trail biking courses already developed around the site as part of the Pennine Lancashire Adrenaline Gateway.
