A Flock of Words, Morecambe

MORECAMBE_flock

These letters form part of a 300 metre typographic pavement connecting the railway station with the Morecambe sea front. Created by Gordon Young in 2003 in collaboration with Why Not Associates, the lettering includes content from the Bible, Shakespeare’s works and the writing of, amongst others, Spike Milligan, Burns and Milton. The pathway was constructed  from granites, concrete, stainless steel, brass and bronze.

Location: Morecambe Promenade, UK
