Description: The sculpture reflects the different methods of travel used by members of the town in their life span, and different transport networks that exist within the town. It also carries a reference to a local industry that used to produce wheels for railway rolling stock.

Commission: Part of a regeneration project in Swinton. The commission was managed by Groundworks Dearne Valley; project manager: Richard Brown. Funding came from WREN for all three sculptures. The wood was recycled from the old lock gates at Swinton Lock; the limestone came from Cadeby, a local quarry. It was felt that it was important that all materials used should have local origins.
