The Singing Ringing Tree
I have known about the East Lancashire Panopticons for a while now, so on the way back from Embsay the other week I took the opportunity to visit a couple of them. Acording to Wikipedia a Panopticon is a structure providing a comprehensive view so the Tree performs that function by being situated on Crown Point high in the East Lancashire Hills above Burnley.
The Singing Ringing Tree is a metal structure of hollow pipes designed by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu of Tonkin Liu and is meant to provide both an audible and visual experience. When the wind blows the tree produces discordant notes, not that it did when I was there but maybe the wind was the wrong sort of wind.
