These are some pictures from an opening of a new contemporary studio workspace at Lupton House, near Brixham. This beautiful Georgian House totally stunned me. It is set within many beautiful acres of gardens and woodland, and it has a rich history: during the Second World War, the gardens were neglected while American forces occupied Lupton House in preparation for the D-Day landings. The house has been vacant since 2004, when it was abandoned as Gramercy Hall School, until it was taken over last year by the Lupton Trust, whose aim is to develop the site as a community enterprise village. I had a great time there, taking pictures, walking around, making a clay figure (mine is the one with the necklace) and eating delicious cakes! I’m just thinking about going back for a Sunday excursion!
