The Sculpture Path at Rydal Hall

Rydal Hall has a history of inspiring artists over centuries, and its ethos and landscape continue to do so. Some work has been developed and arranged into a short walk beginning and ending at the Old School Room Tea Shop.

As far as we are aware, this is the first permanent outdoor exhibition of textile sculpture in Britain. We hope that the work helps to draw attention to the variety of beautiful natural forms in the landscape.

The sculpture path has been designed to be as accessible as possible. Be aware that some areas are rocky and uneven, so please take care. Sturdy footwear may be prudent! Other art and painting are on display in the Tea Shop.

Made primarily from recycled and sustainable materials, the work is continually interacting with the elements and each season brings new changes. Sculptures such as the textile curtains create new viewpoints. The spirals and spheres bring to tangible form the movement of water, air and growth.
