One of my favourite examples of environmental lettering found in Lancaster. These large stone letters were designed and cut by local sculpture Alan Ward as part of the celebrations leading up to the millennium. I love the way the river periodically washes over them, leaving bits of detritus scattered across and around them. It’s an interesting contrast between the precise, expertly worked letters and the chaotic material that often collects there.

They can be found on the south bank of the River Lune near by to the Millennium Bridge.

Location: St George’s Quay, Lancaster, UK.
