Waymarker Lower Ouseburn Valley

Waymarkers – Lewis Robinson 2002

Before descending into the lower Ouseburn Valley, there is a ‘Waymarker’, one of a series of signposts, artworks which recur throughout the Lower Ouseburn, all have a distinct appearance and color.

Made from Steel and Glass, commissioned by – The Ouseburn Partnership. The project comprises a series of Waymarkers designed to highlight the main routes through the valley, to encourage more walkers and cyclists to use the area.

The Waymarkers draw on local history and culture for their inspiration and are interconnected by a trail of bottles marking the route through the valley. Lewis Robinson worked closely with the partnership and community to develop the project.
