Made from charcoal of the recently decommissioned and much-loved “Place” or “The Giant’s Chair” as it was known locally, the work will enable walkers to trace the locations of hidden coal excavations that exist 1000ft under foot.

Charcoal Measure opens on 15th March and can be seen ahead of an exhibition Charcoal Works at Hardwick Gallery that opens on 6th April.
