Is there anything better after a bracing winter walk, than curling up by the fire with a steaming bowl of soup and a chilled pint? The Yurtshire Arms Soup Kitchen and Ale House on the lawn at The Devonshire Arms, Bolton Abbey offers the perfect spot to warm up and rest your weary feet after exploring the beauty of the surrounding Yorkshire Dales countryside.

Guests will find a visit provides soup for the soul too, as a donation from the sale of each soup will be given to Skipton Food Bank. Managed by Skipton Baptist Church, this charity runs entirely by donation and provides much needed support to local people in need.

Comfy (socially distanced) chairs, a wood burning stove, fairy lights and an antique truck bar all add to the ambience. And as for the menu, think delicious Yorkshire broth with crusty bread and lashings of butter, black pudding sausage rolls, Yorkshire parkin with clotted cream and a host of other winter warmers. All washed down with a luxury hot chocolate, a pint of Black Sheep or a mulled cider.

If your walk involved your four-legged friend, rest assured that they’ll also receive a warm welcome, with a warm dog bath, a drying off by the fire and a choice of Posh Pooch wine or Woof & Brew dog beer served with a selection of dog biscuits.

Welcome to The Yurtshire Arms. You won’t want to end your walk anywhere else…

Booking is not required and muddy boots are welcome.

HESTERCOMBE GARDENS

Jackdaw Line by Richard Long

Celebrated artist Richard Long’s newly installed artwork Jackdaw Line is set in Hestercombe’s Georgian Landscape Garden. The piece has been commissioned as part of Bampfylde 300, a year of exhibitions and events celebrating the life and work of Hestercombe’s former owner and landscape designer, Coplestone Warre Bampfylde.

Made using local Morte Slate, Jackdaw Line snakes through the landscape below the Box Pond at Hestercombe, and uses stone sourced from a quarry in the same valley.

Richard Long describes his work in general as a ‘love and celebration of the natural world’; and of this new sculpture he says ‘I’m an opportunist – I was invited to make a work, not far from my home, in these beautiful gardens with a fantastic supply of stones, and the help of gardeners who turned their skilled hands to manning wheelbarrows.’

The meandering sculpture is a reminder for the artist of River of Stones, a work made at the eighteenth century Madhavendra Palace in Jaipur in 2018.

Originally programmed by Hestercombe Gallery for earlier this year the commission had to be rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since the start of the pandemic, Long has continued to make work from his home in Bristol, including Spring Line (2020) and Daydreaming Line (2020) both made by the act of walking near his home. This new stone work is Long’s first since the easing of the lockdown.

Tickets

Richard Long’s Jackdaw Line can be seen at Hestercombe from Wednesday to Sunday each week, 10am – 4pm. All visits must be pre-booked online by 5pm on the day before you wish to visit. Book your tickets

In our new exhibition, Welwyn Garden City: By Wisdom and Design, we will be looking at how Ebenezer Howard's vision was put into practice by the founders of the Second Garden City Company and in particular the lead architect Louis de Soisson. It is a chance to see objects from Welwyn Hatfield's museum collection as well as some loaned original material from Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies (HALS) and the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation relating to the foundation and early years of Welwyn Garden City.

Howard's Vision
Howard wanted to create a place which embodied the best elements of town living, without the poor conditions that the industrial revolution had produced, and combine them with the benefits of country living. A marriage of town and country: a Garden City.

Admission:
Children (aged 2 to 16) - 50p
Adult - £3.50
The exhibition is open until Sunday 24th January 2021 at the following times:
