SPOT CHECK: Junction 4 Skatepark Plaza

Ant Ramsey and crew have created a masterpiece up in Blackburn with Darwen. The outdoor plaza offers some of the best rail and ledge setups we’ve ever seen, and the whole setup there is just pretty darn wonderful. With a viewing area / bar overlooking the plaza, a FISE-size-style park course next door, nice build quality, it’s dialled. Ant Ramsey explains:

“I wanted it to feel different and stand out. The street plaza is a good example of that. It feels like something that you would never get in the UK. It is packed full of rails, ledges and quirky little bits.

“The concrete has been done by Mind Works Ramps known for building the Simple Session course but less known in these parts for their concrete. The lads have done an amazing job and it has brought them more work in the UK.”

For the full story behind the huge expansion project at Junction 4 you can check our feature here, but for now take a look at what’s on offer at the street plaza and plan a trip there!
