Event description

Description

Discover how the Wittenham Clumps became one of Paul Nash's favourite and most frequently painted subjects.

The morning 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 great 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 guided walk that takes in both hills of the Clumps and spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

The walk will take place whatever the weather and is approximately 1.5 miles long. It involves some climbing of hills but is not particularly strenuous. Feel free to bring cameras and binoculars as there are regular stops to look at places that were significant to Nash. 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'.
