New Year’s Day at the YSP

The first day of the New Year. For the past three years we’ve driven over the Pennines to the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield. Although we’ve always enjoyed the day out this year we decided on a change and headed for the nearby Yorkshore Sculpture Park to try and combine some culture with a pleasant walk in the country.

It turned out to be rather wild, wet and windy, but we didn’t let the weather spoil our day.

We started off with a rather nice dinner (deep fried squid and prawns with salad and a bucket of chips)
Then we had a look around the Ursula Von Rydingsvard exhibition in the Underground Gallery. Our third visit but definitely worth another look before it closes on the 5th January.
Then we braved the wind and rain for a walk around the park to have a look at some favourite works in the grounds
Including works by Elisabeth Frink
Barbara Hepworth
 
and Henry Moore
Conditions continued to deteriorate so we decided to curtail our walk and retreat to the cafe for a pot of tea and some rather delicious cakes.
