What has evolved is a project that goes beyond art as an object to be looked at, to something that is a part of a landscape to be lived in. ANDY GOLDSWORTHY
In January 1996 the nature sculptor and artist Andy Goldsworthy began work on his Cumbrian sheepfolds project. By April 2003 he had renovated or completely reconstructed forty-six Lake District sheepfolds, which had either fallen into disrepair or disappeared altogether. The sheepfold below, in Low Tilberthwaite, was the last sheepfold he worked on. It's square, and built of limestone with slate sections in the middle of each wall — a reference to Tilberthwaite's quarrying history. In the centre of each slate section is a circle of slate uprights. Various skilled local dry stone wallers helped Goldsworthy with this project.
