Update October 2013: please note that, following the theft of a Henry Moore statue, three other major pieces have been removed into safe storage. You can still enjoy the walk, visit the 'King and Queen' on their eminence and see where the other sculptures were located.

This is a walk with a difference around a 'sculpture park' in a quiet, attractive glen. Pieces of modern sculpture by Auguste Rodin, Henry Moore and Sir Joseph Epstein, collected since 1951 by the local landowner Sir William Keswick, were placed in a completely natural environment, partly alongside the Glenkiln Reservoir and with lovely views throughout.

Please note that there are no refreshments available on this walk.

Sadly there are none left except 1 very high up on the hill above (as noted in the instructions). It would be helpful to add this more clearly to the instructions. The area seems to be (in late October) full of hunting parties - walking on the single track road became a bit of a nuisance with 3 sets of vehicles rushing by (not expecting us, but it was pouring with rain!). Also free range cattle so could be a problem with a dog. But a beautiful glen despite all that!
