The Denny Treasure Trail is one of 5 permanent public art commissions for the 2018 regeneration of Denny town centre near Falkirk. Commissioned by Falkirk Council as part of a 7.6 million pound regeneration programme, the history of Denny’s people, industry and natural environment is told through a series of small sculptures made in stainless steel, treated oak, cast iron and cor-ten steel. Chestnut seeds, foundries and mining amongst other stories are subtly blended to create a journey across the new town square and out beyond to the edges of the town.

The Denny Battleship is cast in iron at the local foundry; all that is left of a mighty industry in Denny. Here they cast ship engines, cleats and ploughs. Paper mills printed products including Monopoly boards - this playful work is also inspired by the ship counter from that game but it’s deck depicts the factories, which once lined the River Carron in Denny. It is mounted on a nautical bow - shaped oak base that points to Glasgow Road, where many of the ships engines were cast at Cruikshanks. Cast iron/oak

Sculpture made in Denny at Specialised Castings and Blueton Fabricators.
