    Described as “the most daring piece of public art ever commissioned in the UKâ€￾, it is seen as the jewel in the crown of the 2008 public art programme.

    It was organised by the Culture Company and Liverpool Biennial, which was also responsible for bringing Antony Gormley’s “iron menâ€￾ statues to Crosby beach.

    Mr Wilson, one of Britain’s best-known sculptors, is renowned for drawing inspiration from the worlds of construction and engineering, and Turning The Place Over is no exception.

    The cut-out, which measures eight metres across, rests on a rotator usually found in the shipping or nuclear industries.

    The Culture Company believes “this astonishing feat of engineering will stun audiences. Passers-by will have a thrilling experience as the building rotates above themâ€￾.

    this former yates wine lodge was worth a little mooch (also called cross keys house)
