Studio experience

David built his own studio some years ago out of straw bales next to his house in Lower Wharfedale overlooking the Harewood Estate.   It is surrounded by large and beautiful gardens and pond. Visitors are welcome to stroll, sit by the water and contemplate how the surrounding landscape is reflected in his work.

There is also a wonderful walk through Rougemont Wood by the remains of Rougemont Castle. This early medieval earth and timber ringwork fortress was founded by the de Lisles family. The ringwork now stands on a steep north bank, where the River Wharfe turns a right angle to the river Wharfe. This is a short walk down a path that runs at the side of the garden.
