Early ideas – 12.09.07

Project Neptune Lead Artist Nathan Hughes visited Monks Park School to introduce the project and explain that the aim was to recreate the lost east gardens at Dyrham Park. He emphasised that Heritage Lottery Funds Young Roots projects were led by the ideas of the young people involved. After researching the history of Dyrham Parks’ lost gardens and looking at examples of artists work for inspiration, the group focused on ways to represent the famous water cascade of over 220 steps which flowed down a hill from the Statue of Neptune.
