It was commissioned by In-Situ and Pendle Hill Landscape Partnership as part of The Gatherings.

The hut (yet to be named by local residents), will spend the next three years touring and meeting people who live in the nearby towns and villages, enabling conversations in and about the area and showing work by artists and projects that are currently underway that respond to the hill.

The hut was designed and made by artist and architect Nick Wood of How About? Studio. The initial idea to create a mobile space that could travel around Pendle was inspired by the history of the area, from the itinerancy of the early Quakers, as they moved through Pennine Lancashire in the 1760s to the Clarion Huts which toured this area preaching the early message of socialism, and also shepherds huts that reflect the position of humans working in the landscape.

This distinctive-looking hut will play a crucial role in In-Situ’s work with local people and the environment, by creating a space for residents to meet artists and share stories and views about the area, and to take newly commissioned art work made about the hill and its history into communities.
