Description

The penultimate trail in the series of the FREE Local Landscape Heroes walks takes place in the village of Crossford. The CAVLP Heritage team will lead the walk along the trail which Duncan Shanks used for the inspiration of his famous landscape paintings.

The CAVLP Heritage Project has been very successful in identifying over 80 pieces of art from the Clyde and Avon Valley which can be seen in a virtual art trail on the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership website. Much of the art featured on the trail was created in the 19th century and depicts a fascinating changing landscape. This trail highlights the changes not only in the landscape but in the paintings. Duncan Shanks method of using rich strong colour brings a stark contrast to the other paintings highlighted in the Local Landscape Heroes walks.

Organised by CAVLP Heritage, these guided walks will trace the artistic footsteps of local landscape heroes and track down the subjects used in selected paintings. The group will photograph a version of each landscape view, adding in frames and comparing them to the original works of art. The group will also be guided to conduct a walkover survey and record any archaeological sites encountered on the trail.

The fifth artist trail in the Local Landscape Heroes project takes place in Crossford on the 3rd November, this will be an easy walk approximately 1 mile long. Participants should meet at the Crossford Parish Church.
