Description"The sheepfold is within the grounds of Church Brough Primary School and visible from the road. It was opened by Andy Goldsworthy on 13th September 2001. "In 1996 the internationally acclaimed artist Andy Goldsworthy was commissioned by Cumbria County Council to celebrate this 'perfect republic of shepherds' with a countywide sculpture project called ‘Sheepfolds’ as part of the UK Year of the Visual Arts. It was my great privilege to take over from Steve Chettle as the manager of the project between 2000 and 2003. At its conclusion Andy Goldsworthy and a team of dry stone wallers, led by local expert Steve Allen, completed nearly 50 Sheepfolds, which as a collective whole, is probably the biggest sculpture in the world." http://www.edenbenchmarks.org.uk/sheepfolds.htm" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2018.
