"The first glimpse of the view from Holmbury Hill is a heart stopping, glad to be alive in England moment. It demands savouring, mulling over, contemplation and discussion. You are invited to do so from the sociable conversation bench that now accompanies that view." Matthew Burt
The Inspiring Views project run by Surrey Hills Arts and funded by The Mittal Foundation, invited five artists, a poet and a sound artist to create sculptural seating in five outstanding views within the Surrey Hills. We created our bench from sweet chestnut for the Hurtwood and Holmbury Hill site and placed the individual seats in an arrangement so visitors can sit out towards the view or inwards for sociable conversation and picnics, also allowing wheelchair access.
So lace up your boots and get walking to discover them for yourselves - for details of all the works visit www.inspiringviews.org
