Things to see and do

The Dunkey Sheep

Have your very own Thomas Bewick print 

Thomas Bewick was ahead of his time. Using Box Wood and patiently carving intricately detailed pictures into the blocks of wood, he created masterpieces of all shapes and sizes. Now, you can have your very own. The National Trust doesn't use his original blocks very often, however we do love to celebrate his work. If you would like to own a piece of Bewick's art too, then take a look at what's on offer
