If you are visiting Raby Castle and High Force this summer don’t miss the fascinating outdoor art exhibition that is on display beside the River Tees at Low Force.
Low Force is one of the picturesque waterfalls of Upper Teesdale, just off the B6277 between Raby Castle and High Force or around 1.6 miles from High Force along the Pennine Way.
“Natural Creation” brings to life the area’s extraordinary geological past. The installation features the work of artist Rob Mullholland with polished metal figures mirroring the landscape around them.
This exhibition is all about celebrating the power and beauty of nature so it is an ideal spot to visit as part of a day out to the majestic castle and deer park at Raby Castle and the rugged drama of High Force Waterfall. Start your day with breakfast in the Tearooms at Raby Castle, which opens at 9am daily, and explore the Castle, Park and Gardens. Then head up to High Force where you can park, experience the mighty High Force waterfall where the River Tees drops 70ft, and walk on to Low Force to take in the exhibition.
The art exhibition recognises the impressive natural beauty of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a UNESCO Global Geopark, and both Low Force and High Force are stunning examples of how the region’s volcanic past has shaped the landscape.
The exhibition has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England and we are sure it will attract plenty of visitors over the summer months. It will be on display until mid October.
