The new year got off to a great start with the news that 'Crichton rippled beech' was accepted at the Harley Gallery's second open exhibition.
Situated on the Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire, the gallery is a beautiful space and I was disappointed that the snow prevented me from attending the opening last weekend. However, the show is on till 17th March so there's plenty of time to visit yet.
My family are from nearby Worksop and I used to visit Welbeck as a child, so the place has fond memories for me. I also discovered that my Great Auntie worked there during World War II making munitions!
