Not a favourite as such, but this always reminds me of shopping trips to the exciting metropolis of Basildon

Passmore’s Apollo Pavillion has always impressed me as well:

Calder’s Flamingo really works in its setting, against the Mies skyscrapers behind

Before old enough to go to pubs my pals would go down the river, one guy set the bench on fire (don’t condone this, the guy was a fool). Weirdly the council decided to replace the bench with a weird bench/sculpture of flames :fire: as if to commemorate the original bench. Don’t think it is there any more but that was my favourite, liked have a sculpture weirdly linked to my youth

big fan of when kids used to fill this up with washing up liquid and flood ramsbottom town centre with bubbles
