About

A field corner with expansive views to the north and west, west of the Yorkshire Wolds Way off the access track to the Yorkshire Wolds Way Caravan and Camping site at West Farm, East Knapton, North Yorkshire.

Creation of a new resting and view point, which takes inspiration from the ancient archaeological remains found in this area whilst reinstating an old farming practice, the dew pond, to enhance the view as a sky mirror and contribute to biodiversity. The artwork is made up of new chalk paths edged with split oak posts, leading up to the slightly raised viewpoint in front of the new dew pond, to look out to the magnificent view of the Vale of Pickering and the North York Moors.

This site is also home to some 'guardian warriors', carved oak statues based on finds of tiny carved chalk warriors in the nearby Derwent Valley.
