Land art created by Worth Valley YFC in Yorkshire has been shortlisted in the 'Line the route' Tour de Yorkshire 2017 Land Art competition and the Club is calling on YFCs to help them win.

A team of 12 members from Worth Valley YFC created the land art called Branwell Bronte to mark 200 years since the birth of Branwell Bronte and the invention of the bicycle. The 80m long by 60m high installation sits on land near Haworth and shows Branwell sitting on a bicycle.

The Club worked on their land art with Haworth Primary School, who helped them to place the 3,000 plant pots that make up the design.

The land art was created to line the route of the Tour de Yorkshire and has now been shortlisted alongside others that were created for the event. The artwork was beamed around the world on television during the Tour de Yorkshire event.

Worth Valley YFC originally started doing land art in 2014 when they got involved in creating a piece for the Tour De France. After the publicity from that project they have been commissioned to create land art for other organisations around the region and have set up their own company called Fields of Vision.

Club Leader Andrew Wood said: “We have members from age 11 through to me as a Club Leader who get involved in the land art projects. It’s great because everyone can contribute and when you stand back and look at what you have done, you feel very proud.”
