Stourhead Project advances

The National Trust at Stourhead has received news of a successful bid for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to finance a collaborative venture for installations to tell the story of the effect of World War 1 on the Stourhead community  The Scraptors will be holding  workshops  and creating five installation in the estate which will be visible from  public paths.The illustration show one of our ideas for an installation which will refer to the convalescing soldiers who were allowed to row on the lake. The installation will not be on this lake but on another in the wider estate - no question of marring the classic view of the world famous eighteenth century landscape garden.  We are planning also floating a pontoon with a band of musicians to commemorate the concerts held for the wounded soldiers.
