Mr Monkey couldn't help noticing some largish sculptures in the gallery. One group was a set of maquettes by Gordon Young for a sculpture in Preston depicting the shooting of strikers by militia in 1842. The other is a long curving screen made from COR-TEN so that it matches the outside of the museum. It's the work of Stephen Charnock and shows the people marching for freedom.
A few weeks later Mr Monkey went to Preston to see the full size Workers Memorial.
