The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is an open-air gallery in West Bretton near Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England, showing work by British and international artists, including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth and until the 11th January 2016 it also includes Wave a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks [previously seen at the Tower of London];
WeepingWindow is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies seen pouring from a high window to the ground below. These two sculptures, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, created to mark the centenary of the outbreak of war.
This trip is planned to allow members the opportunity to see the poppies and other exhibits. The location also includes the chance to walk the extensive grounds, including a lake and woodland areas.
I suggest departure from Melbourne at 09.00hours and travel to the YSP, arriving shortly after opening time.
