Sculpture in Walk Wood in East Sussex

Walk Wood at Sheffield Park 

Walk Wood is part of the historic estate at Sheffield Park and we have been restoring it in a 15 year project. This summer the woods are open daily until the end of September. To celebrate, local artist Keith Pettit has created a collection of sculptures that form a new trail through the woodland.
