Nice to find something a little different in Lancashire. We drove up but it would also be a lovely walk. I bet it looks very impressive at night when it is lit up with blue lights.

Gorgeous panoramic views of Rossendale on a sunny day, with Burnley and Manchester at either end in the distance. The Halo looks like the skeleton of a space ship! Limited free parking, as mentioned in other reviews. I imagine it would be a lovely place...More

I love visiting the Halo with its wind powered blue LED lights that light up after dark. It looks like a glowing space ship. It is part of a set of 5 sculptures in East Lancashire. Great place to take the kids.
