Pendle residents had a chance to board The Ark when it floated into Brierfield on the canal last week.

The floating sculpture and cinema is a wooden terraced house on a boat, cut with beautiful Islamic art designs – and has a living meadow on the roof!

It moored under Brierfield Mill near the bridge close to the grassed area on Clitheroe Road, where Pennine Lancashire-themed films were shown over three days. There was also a talk on Brierfield Mills and a chance to take part in Talkaoke, where Brierfield’s In-Situ arts organisation asked people’s opinions about the town in a pop-up talk show.
