Photos from this page were taken at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Sunday 4th April 2004. The Park can be found a mile from junction 38 of the M1 motorway, there are brown tourist signs to direct you from the M1. The weather was mostly dry and bright, but windy with occasional heavy rain showers. To visit page two from the visit click here.

The park is a registered charity and there are no admittance charges other than the small car parking charge.
The modern and contemporary sculptures are set amongst the 500 acres of the 18th century parkland at the Bretton Estate. Centre photo above shows views across the Lower Lake.
Many of the sculptures on this page, from the Country Park are by the artist Henry Moore, (1898-1986). Dogs on leads are welcome in many areas of the park, there is even a specific dog walking route, although they are not permitted in the buildings or in the Formal and Bothay garden areas.
No this isn't a amazingly life like sculpture, (centre photo), it is one of the locals. With all the recent rain you really need to wear some decent footwear if you are going to wander around the Country Park areas. Access for people with mobility difficulties is mixed in the different areas of the park and there are free electric scooters available for hire, you can book in advance, further information including contact details can be found on the Yorkshire Sculpture Park website, to visit click this link, www.ysp.co.uk
Centre photo above shows the Visitors Centre where facilities include a shop and restaurant. The photo on the left above is the work of Eduardo Chillida, (1924-2002) one of Spain's leading twentienth century artists. This particular piece, entitled Buscando la Luz IV, (meaning looking for light) weighs almost 20 tonnes. More photos on page two from the visit, click here.
