The scheme involved the creation of a series of small, interlinked squares and pedestrian routes, animated with bespoke furniture, paving, artworks, lighting, signage and a village clock. The design is inspired by the simplicity and functionality of the canal and railway architecture, combined with the flamboyant, colourful traditions of the canalboats.

BCA Landscape, along with West Lancashire District Council, Lancashire County Council, Burscough Parish Council, and local residents, wanted to renew the area, which had suffered years of neglect. This was done through a series of squares and pedestrian routes inspired by local myths.

The design celebrates the history of the area, expressed in a unique and contemporary style. It was inspired by the simplicity and functionality of the canal and railway architecture, combined with the spirit, colour, songs and tradition of the canalboats and the people who worked on them. BCA Landscape worked with design consultants Smiling Wolf to achieve a final design that reinforces a renewed sense of identity and community.
