Yorkshire Sculpture Park

This is a brilliant place to go on a sunny summer's day. Or any other day for that matter.

Reclining Figure Arch Leg Henry Moore 1979

It's the kind of place where the adults can have a culture fix in an informal and outdoor setting and where young children can run around, let off steam and upset no-one but the sheep.

Draped Seated Woman Henry Moore 1957-1958

Most of the exhibits here are begging for a response: to be touched, stroked and peeped through. 

Part of the Family of Man by Dame Barbara Hepworth

Fascinating to watch the interaction of adult and child alike.

Black Mound David Nash 2013

One and Other Antony Gormley 2000

This is just amazing.

Stand back, look skywards and admire.

Simply sublime.

The scale of the works is so in tune with the rolling Yorkshire landscape that it was a stroke of sheer genius to choose this site as an open air gallery.

No boundaries, other than the earth, sky and elements fetter these pieces.

So many stunning pieces, created from a wide range of materiels.
