Grizedale Forest set for new sculptures

New funding is set to ensure the installation of new sculptures in the Grizedale Forest as part of an extended trail.

Those who like to go walking in the Lake District will be able to enjoy the features thanks to £175,000 from South Lakeland Council and Arts Council England, who contributed £80,000 and £95,000 respectively.

It will help the Arts Roots Grizedale add to the features that already exist in the forest.

The Forestry Commissions curator of arts development at Grizedale, Hayley Skipper, said: "Grizedale Forest has a rich history of being a unique landscape for inspirational art which has drawn visitors locally, regionally, nationally and internationally for decades."

Grizedale Forest lies between Esthwaite Water and Coniston Water in the south of the Lake District and is one of three owned by the Forestry Commission for England.

The others are Ennerdale and Whinlatter, with the second of these describing itself as England's only mountain forest park, since its boundaries extend to the 2,595 ft summit of Grisedale Pike.
