I attach below just a sample of some of the sculptures on view in this delightful hidden setting in England’s Surrey Hills. In fact, my photographs were taken about ten years ago and since that time there have been considerable changes to both the venue and the artwork on display. The setting is very atmospheric. It lies in a steep-sided valley covered in trees and vegetation and dotted with pools, water gardens and water features. Just wandering around the many pathways there is a delight, with unexpected positioning of sculptures popping up at every turn of the many rambling paths to surprise and to appreciate. Many well–known sculptors display their work there, all in the open air often half-hidden amongst the undergrowth and bracken. There are something like 800 exhibits scattered throughout this ten acre site amidst the many trees, lakes, and the natural wildlife of the area. In fair or in inclement weather a visit there is a guaranteed delight,
