Earth Sculpture in Bourne Woods
Earth Sculpture in Bourne Woods
In the 1980s and 1990s Bourne wood was managed as a 'Community Woodland' and a range of young sculptors were given a period of residence to make something lasting.

These mounds of earth are the last remaining traces of this programme.

Erected in the location that was once the visitors' car park the work consisted of curved, sloping, banks something like a range of escarpments. The original shape is much obscured now by collapse, becoming overgrown, and settlement. As originally constructed it reminded me of a half scale Napoleonic era redoubt.

At around the time this work was installed the forestry commission were fighting a running battle with a group of hippie musicians who were inclined to turn up unbidden for equinoxial festivals. It would be uncharitable to suppose that the funding to build the sculpture was obtained to pay for blocking the place the hippie caravans and buses parked.
