Two go on a sculpture trail

Grizedale Forest in the Lake District is a perennial favourite of ours. We love it because it’s a huge area of woodland, heath and moorland criss-crossed by walking trails. We love the views. And most of all, we love the sculpture trail, which changes every now and again so you never quite know what you’re going to find hiding amongst the trees.

This time I’d heard that the three artworks featured in the ‘northern’ episode of Sky Arts’ new series Landmark were on display. We took a breather from work, had a coffee in the sunny courtyard, and set off to explore. This time, we didn’t find those particular pieces. That’s not to say they aren’t there; with almost 6,000 acres of forest to explore the chances of coming across them by chance are quite remote! We’ll pop back again soon, and do some research to see if we can narrow down the area where we need to look.

In the meantime we had a nice stroll along the shortest trail, past some rather odd sheep, a set of musical bamboo poles, and these deer (pic) which are balanced on the roof of a structure and beautifully silhouetted through the trees if you know where to look.
