Surrey Unearthed at Leith Hill Place

Leith Hill from the air

On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 6-22 July, explore new perspectives on the landscapes of the Surrey Hills in a special showcase of artwork from Surrey Unearthed.

Surrey Unearthed is an Arts Council-funded programme developed to celebrate 60 years since the Surrey Hills were designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty designation in 1958.


In this exhibition, ten artists explore their connections to the Surrey landscape. Each artist unwraps a different layer of the natural fabric that makes up the Surrey Hills, working in a range of media from film through writing and sculpture.

Don't miss Ackroyd and Harvey's The Lark Descending, whose title references the famous work composed by Leith Hill Place's own Ralph Vaughan Williams. This interactive piece expresses the vibrancy and vulnerability of Leith Hill, ‘unearthing’ why we strike a deep relationship with this landscape and place, and why people are compelled to protect it.
