Each Saturday's event will start with an illustrated talk in the modern extension of St Agatha’s Church, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, OX10 0RY, situated just below the Wittenham Clumps. Tea and coffee will be included. Nash’s uncle, who owned the nearby house where Nash and his family stayed on their visits to the Clumps, is buried in the churchyard here.
A short drive (please use your own transport) will lead to the Wittenham Clumps for a walk that takes in both the wooded hills of the Clumps and spectacular views of the countryside around.
The walk (which will take place whatever the weather) will be approximately 1 - 2 miles long and will involve some climbing of hills. There will be regular stops to look at places that were significant to Nash. Nobody will be left behind! Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Feel free to bring cameras and binoculars. No dogs please, as cattle often graze the landscape.
Christopher Baines runs the Paul Nash & Wittenham Clumps website with artist Anna Dillon. He has given talks about Paul Nash at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and has been interviewed about Nash for the BBC television programmes ‘Paul Nash: The Ghosts of War’ and ‘Countryfile’.
Each Saturday's event will last around two and a half hours, including the talk.
Tickets for both walks are now sold out. If you would like to hear about any future events, please email email@example.com
