Nine sculptures are set into the grass parkland, across an area just over one mile long and approximately half a mile wide. There is no fixed route or path from one sculpture to another, we recommend you leave at least two to three hours to see them all.

Seven sculptures are near to a tarmac road or gravel path. Many of the sculptures are large or tall and so can be seen from a distance. Whilst we have made every effort to ensure as much accessibility as possible for all our visitors, getting up close to the sculptures may not be possible for everyone.

They are all set into grass, which is not mown but is grazed by sheep and deer. The ground is uneven, sloping with some steep inclines, and in wet weather it can be muddy and slippery.

2. What are the roads and paths like?

There are a number of paths through the park, but not from one sculpture to another.

There is one main tarmac road that cuts through the park. It is also open to traffic including buses, and there is no separate pavement or footpath. Visitors should be aware that care needs to be taken on this road. There are a number of smaller, gravel paths, with uneven surfaces and inclines. There is occasional vehicle traffic on these paths.
