Paul Nash and the Wittenham Clumps Walks

Saturday 1st and Saturday 8th September 2018, 10.00am

Each Saturday's event begins with an illustrated talk in the modern extension of St Agatha's Church, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, close to the Wittenham Clumps. Paul Nash's uncle, who owned the nearby house where Nash and his family stayed on their visits to the Clumps, is buried in the churchyard here.

A short drive (please use your own transport) will lead to the Wittenham Clumps for a walk that takes in both wooded hills of the Clumps and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

The walk (which will take place whatever the weather) is approximately 1 - 2 miles long. It involves some climbing of hills but is not particularly strenuous. Nobody will be left behind! There are regular stops to look at places that were significant to Nash. Feel free to bring cameras and binoculars. No dogs please as cattle often graze the landscape.

Christopher Baines runs the Paul Nash and the Wittenham Clumps website with artist Anna Dillon. He has given talks about Paul Nash at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, and has been interviewed about Nash for the BBC television programmes 'Paul Nash: The Ghosts of War' and 'Countryfile'.


Starting at 10.00am, the event will last around two and a half hours.
