A two hour stop off on the way to Scarborough. Yorkshire Day begins dry, but we encounter showers and clouds during our walk around the sculpture park. After a good light lunch in the restaurant with good views across the park, we head to the Henry Moore exhibition, “Back to a Land”, in the underground gallery. We are then taken into the Roger Hiorns installation, “seizure” from 2008; it is the interior skeleton of of a bedsit made out of solidified copper sulphate crystals, incredibly blue and gradually disintegrating. We look at the sculptures on the Hillside area and then have a look at the old Camellia House and Caro’s “Promenade” by the lake before walking through the country park to visit the 18th century chapel which contains beautiful glass sculptures  by De Santillana. It only costs us £5 to park; no entrance fee, exceptionally good value and unsurprisingly busy, although the park is so large it can absorb a lot of visitors. A very good stop off.
