'Flying Saucer' In The Hills

Friday, 27th February 2004

Is it a halo or a flying saucer?

Whatever way you look at plans for a massive monument for
Rossendale - just unveiled - it will certainly be a dominant
feature of the skyline to visitors approaching the Valley.

The intention is that the circular steel mesh creation will be
lit from underneath to make it appear as if it is hovering above
the hillside gateway into Rossendale at Top o' Slate above
Haslingden.

It has been called the Halo by its designer, John Kennedy, of
Tockholes, near Darwen, but is more likely to be dubbed the
flying saucer, especially as Rossendale is part of "UFO alley"
because of sightings.

John is planning to have his Halo - 20 metres in diameter -
 standing five metres off the ground on a tripod. The cost, in
the region of =A350,000, will be met by the North West Development
Agency and the East Lancashire Partnership.

His design was chosen from 188 ideas in a competition.

Other East Lancashire landmarks were his inspiration, among them
Darwen Tower, which had the appearance of a comic strip "Flash
Gordon" rocket.

And he admitted that the idea of a UFO was in his mind.

What do you think of the Halo?
