Crawick Multiverse is landscape artist Charles Jencks’ creation on the site of a former open cast coal mine in Upper Nithsdale.
The multiverse was created using material found at the site, including thousands of boulders half buried below the ground. The landscape represents various cosmic patterns and combines four opposite ecologies – grasslands, mountains, a water gorge and a desert. It takes you on a journey past the Milky Way to a supercluster of galaxies, and then to a multiverse. Well, that’s the story…..
It’s a place I would love to visit in the winter when there’s snow or frost on the ground.
