'Athelete's Foot' and 'Footprint', 2000
Manor Recreation Ground, S9
concrete and ceramic tiles

Manor Recreation Ground, alongside a cycle path (the Trans Pennine Trail). This is located next to the Parkway near the Prince of Wales Road exit. (A-Z p.101 3/4E)

Two concrete 'feet' with their surfaces decorated with colourful mosaic patterns.

National Cycle Network. Working with children from neighboroughing Pipworth Junior and St Oswald's RC Primary Schools. [1]

The piece has been badly damaged; first one foot had large areas of tiles removed from it, and then the other suffered the same fate. Each foot was made by children from a different school and the artist suspects that the selective vandalism may have been carried out by children partisan to one or other school. [2]
Two other neighboroughing pieces were installed at the same time by artists Simon Kent and Coralie Turpin, both also working with local schoolchildren.
