Art in the Barn on Hadrian's Wall
Dates & Times: Every Saturday and Sunday between 22nd April - 2nd September 2018
Hours: 11am - 4pm
On the outer west edges of Northumberland you will find Green Croft, a farmstead located between Greenhead and Gilsland, sitting directly on the line of Hadrian’s Wall. Originally called Foul Town, the buildings date from the early 18th century however the stone from which they are built was likely plundered from Hadrian’s Wall.
Visual artist Imogen Cloët and sound artist Kit Haigh have been commissioned to make a new temporary art installation that reflects on the sights, sounds and essence of these historic farm buildings located within the World Heritage Site.
Presented in the Threshing Barn that backs on to the national trail, Art in the Barn is ONLY accessible by foot. So whether visiting Northumberland National Park, having a day out at Birdoswald or Roman Army Museum or downloading one of our suggested walks, make us part of your exploration of the Northumbrian / Cumbrian landscape.
