Within these Walls – Haytime in the Yorkshire Dales

29 April to 17 September 2023

Artist Hester Cox shares her passion for the hay meadows of the Yorkshire Dales and the diversity of meadow plants and wildlife found living and feeding in this special habitat. The exhibition features linocuts and a variety of collagraph work by Hester, including her stunning “Within these walls” installation. Together with hay time artefacts from the Museum collections, archives connected with the Irish workers who once came to work in the Yorkshire Dales at hay time and woodcuts by Marie Hartley, this exhibition is a wonderful exploration of the history and contemporary importance of hay meadows.
