Spread out across 200 sq. miles of The Midlands, these fascinating column sculptures are the work of internationally renowned artist, David Nash.

Each column is carved from sustainable English Oak and has a slot marking ‘true’ noon on midsummer and midwinter’s days, creating a line of light in the shadow cast by the column.

‘Arts in the Forest’ are an important dimension of the ambitious plan to create a new, large, forested area in England, with the benefits of having woodland close to where people live and work.
