The life size ‘Lucky Dog’ was carved from a block of expanded polystyrene, which was then cast directly into steel at the Todmorden foundry of Weir Minerals, in a lost-wax process. The sculpture was donated to Centre Vale Park and is installed next to the Memorial Gardens, gazing at the tops of nearby Widdop.

The Lucky Dog was made famous by Derren Brown’s TV Show ‘The Experiments.’
