Land Art ExhibitionThe legacy of the Tour de Yorkshire is living on in Hambleton!

A special exhibition of eleven of the pieces of land art created for the May visit of the world famous race has been mounted by the District Council.

Throughout the summer visitors to the Civic Centre in Northallerton can check out framed photographs of the work by local communities. Several schools are represented – Applegarth County Primary; Northallerton School; Brompton County Primary; East Thirsk County Primary; Stokesley School; and Hutton Rudby County Primary.

There is also work by Thirsk and Northallerton Golf Club, Hillside Scout Group and the White Horse Explorer Scout Unit; Great Ayton village; and District Councillor Bridget Fortune.

And an image of the piece created in partnership by Hambleton District Council with the Yorkshire Gliding Club and North York Moors National Park is also on display!

“Communities across Hambleton embraced the visit of the tour but these pieces of land art were only visible from the air so were not seen by many people,” said Council Leader, Councillor Mark Robson.

“We wanted to mark this work so we took drone pictures of some of them and this exhibition gives people a chance to check out the artistic talent that was on show.”

The exhibition is open from Monday to Thursday 8.45am until 5.15pm and from 8.45am until 4.45pm on Fridays.
