Hanging Stones Art Project



Hanging Stones is an ongoing project by Andy Goldsworthy in the North Yorkshire Moors, commissioned by the David Ross Foundation. It is intended that up to ten existing buildings, all in varying states of disrepair, will be rebuilt as contemporary artworks, addressing our relationship with the landscape today.  They will be connected by a six-mile walk encompassing Northdale, near Rosedale Abbey.
Hanging Stones has been conceived as a single artwork – the walk between each building is as much a part of the artwork as the buildings themselves. The walk will include completed houses as well as the sites of works yet to be made. To date, four houses have been completed: Hanging Stone House, Redwall, Job’s Well and Hither House. The remaining houses are works in progress.
