To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Pendle Witch Trials, artist Philippe Handford connected illegally felled trees together along the 2012 Pendle Sculpture Trail. His sculpture, Reconnected 1, features a tree trunk joined with its stump with a smoothly curving metal spine and slices of wood. Reconnected 2 consists of four tree stumps. The stumps are joined in pairs to create two crossing arches. Like the accused “witches” of the Pendle Witch Trials, the trees used in Handford’s sculptures were irresponsibly executed. Handford’s pieces were inspired by the location and were designed to look as if they are falling.Hadford is one among the four artists who were asked to create pieces for the trail. The other artists include Sarah McDade, Steve Blaylock, and Martyn Bednarczuk.
