Next YGT Event - Plumpton Rocks

Summer Picnic - Plumpton Rocks, Saturday 24th June


This is a special visit by kind permission of the owner, Robert Hunter and is 20 years after our last midsummer visit with his father Edward, who was a founder trustee of YGT.

J.M.W. Turner, the artist, made two oil paintings of Plumpton Rocks following his first visit to Yorkshire in 1797. The rocks, outcrops of weathered and contorted millstone grit, form a band on one side of a lake created from medieval fishponds contained by a dam designed by John Carr.

Cost £9.00
