Artist's Way at Clumber Park

Artist discussing his work with a bystander

Artist’s Way creates links between the artistic community and Clumber Park, by providing them with the support of a map of our best and most inspirational places. It is an expanding project that will cover the different seasons, and a wide variety of accessible and more adventurous locations in which artists can capture the spirit of Clumber Park.

Artist’s Way allows visiting artists to explore the best and most inspirational views the Park has to offer with this handy guide and open sessions. The idea was the brainchild of Martin Edwardson, a local artist and frequent Clumber Park visitor, and this map has been created for a trial period with a view to reveal more maps in the future.

They are designed to guide artists through Clumber Park and its superb scenery, helping them capture the park for future generations as a part of the Clumber Park Revitalised initiative. Some areas, such as the Walled Kitchen Garden and the Chapel, must be booked in advance; to do so please contact claire.sarris@nationaltrust.org.uk or call 01909 511081
