The Singing Ringing Tree. A quick visit.


After an overnight trip into Burnley we decided to go up to the Singing Ringing Tree located at SD8512 2894 on the way home. We hadn't been to it in the past and it is located very close to the car park. It only takes a few minutes to walk and on a decent path to get to it. 

The "Tree" is a wind powered orchestra of tubes, sculptured into a wind blown shape of a mountain tree.

It was erected in 2006 and is one of four sculptures created by the East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network. Desiged by Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu.

It was a good day to stand under the tree as the wind was relatively strong. The sounds were fantastic. It was bitterly cold and we didn't stay too long. At the car park a man had a flat tyre so I volunteered to change it for him. My fingers felt like they were about to fall off it was freezing.

It was an enjoyable 1/2 hr.


  1. You managed a dramatic picture there.

  2. I was there on a similar murky day on 18th August 2021.

    Certainly worth a visit and probably all the better on a dreish day when the wind is blowing.

  3. BC, Thanks. To be honest it was taken rather quickly.

  4. 18th August is a well known date to me. I will pop back over to your blob and refresh myself. Hope you are well on the mend Conrad.

  5. The Singing Ringing Tree has been on my 'must visit' list since I read Conrad's blog about it. It's not a location we tend to find ourselves passing, so I think I'm going to have to engineer a visit at some point.

  6. Hello Gayle, hope you are both well. As well as the tree there are some nice walks which you could engineer for a couple of hours if you are just passing. Good views too.
