Out in the van – Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Wet. Very wet,. Moist, damp and soaked. Drenched. Sodden.

Where: Yorkshire sculpture park, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England

When: 14th February 2022

Why: Been before but didn’t get to see it all so wanted to return

With: Just me and the dog, Theo

The sculpture park is a huge country park, scattered with some quite fabulous sculptures from a variety of rather famous folk, including Damien Hirst who grew up in Yorkshire. You can walk for hours and hours, taking in monstrously huge works of art, and there are indoor and outdoor exhibits to enjoy, as well as some great walled gardens.

But sometimes it just pisses down with rain and you get so wet that you spend the whole time shouting ‘stop running you bastard, you’ll pull me over’ at the dog, and you head back to the van soaked to the skin because it turns out the coat you wore is not at all waterproof.

I took some photos, but to be honest my glasses were so obscured they were somewhat of a surprise to me…

Think I will go back in the summer!

  1. Interesting sculptures with the cutaway Michael. The first picture of Theo I am sure he is amazed at the pregnant woman statue. 🙂 Sorry you had crummy weather – was this part of Storm Eunice that I am hearing about? Hope you get back there in better weather and we get to see more.

  2. Absolutely love the old bridge! These are interesting sculptures. Sorry your coat was not waterproof… have to be careful with that – some wicked people are allergic to water and those too sweet can melt. 😉😂
