NIK_15304 - CopyThis year it’s not just the autumn colours making a breathtaking appearance at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. As well as the rich golden hues of this ‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ there are also the vibrant reds of thousands of ceramic poppies.

NIK_15290 - CopyFor on display, cascading from the stone parapet of a bridge into the waters of the lake below is a wave of poppies; some of the iconic commemorative ceramic poppies from last year’s exhibition held at the Tower of London. They grabbed the public’s spirit and attention then and they do so again now, this time in the glorious surroundings of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

I hope you can manage a visit.

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park covers over 200 acres and is set amongst the rolling countryside parkland and lakes of Bretton Hall, a 500 acre 18th century estate in West Yorkshire. Alongside original follies, landscape features and architectural structures modern works of art vie for the visitors attention as you meander though the woodlands, along the lakesides and across the parklands. The underground Bothy & Garden Galleries and Longside Gallery also house indoor displays. Currently there is an exhibition by the 20th century Spanish sculptor Joan Miro, the first major showing of his work in the UK.

There are over 60 open air art works including sculptures by Barbara Hepworth, Antony Gormley, Henry Moore and Magdalena Abakanowicz, to name but a few.

Whilst entry is free there is a charge for parking. The park is open all year round (except 24 & 25 December) from 10am to 6pm, and from 28 October till 5pm. The indoor galleries, cafe, restaurant and shop close slightly earlier (please check for exact times) http://www.ysp.co.uk/page/visit-ysp/tc

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is located one mile from Junction 38 of the M1.

Here are a few photographs from a recent visit:
