Set in a 13th Century Barn, the largest of its type in the country, the 140-foot long sculptural installation is an ode to the creative strength of a landscape that inspired Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral and the ancient dwellings of England. Made of wood, chalk, stones, root balls from 300-year-old Sycamore trees and found modern materials it is a celebration of the creative vitality of this area of Wiltshire best known as the Cranborne Chase.
