By popular request the Sculpure Garden at The Nurtons, Tintern
will be open to the public this August and September.
The innovative sculptures by Gemma Wood demonstrate a breadth
of technical accomplishments. The materials used to make them
have been predominantly sourced from the immediate landscape
such as wood and stone.
The sculptures are placed harmoniously amongst the vibrant,
colourful borders and lawns of this acclaimed plantman’s garden set
in the heart of the Wye Valley.
The pieces celebrate the creative process as an appreciation of natural
forms and cycles.
The strong synergy between the artwork and their beautiful surroundings
has evoked great enthusiasm and amazing comments.
Admission to the garden
£5 for adults
£2 for 12-16 years old
under 12’s free.
(note: if you have already visited the sculpture garden once and wish to visit again or bring others there will be no additional charge for yourselves this season.)
Group Bookings of 12+ people can arrange to come at other times with the option of a guided tour and refreshments. These need to be made by appointment.
