Bradley Youth Centre, Nelson

Work completed in 2012 on the small piece of land in front of the new Nelson Youth and Community Centre known locally as The Zone within the Bradley Hub development on Leeds Road. Designs for the site have been developed by young people who attend the centre, working with local artist William Titley and Pendle Council’s landscape architect Debbie Taylor. Debbie commented “The young people worked really hard to analyse the site and its surroundings and to come up with some ideas for the space. They were interested to find out that Hendon Brook runs under the site, and this has been reflected in the final design through the use of coloured paving”. The coloured paving, Crystalpave and the remaining hard landscaping materials including the feature ‘bench’ were supplied by Hardscape.
