Art in the wild
Albion Fields is a sculpture park set in 50 acres of wild Oxfordshire countryside. The land has been taken out of agricultural use and returned to nature, becoming a haven for birds, butterflies and other wildlife.

Timed entrance tickets need to be booked online in advance, however, entry is free. Pick up a map and check out the exhibits which are clustered around and inside Albion Barn, then set off to explore the fields.

The sculptures are dotted around amidst tall yellow grass and purple thistles, woodland and a pond. Even clutching the map, there is a real sense of adventure in searching for the next installation. Although the land is being reclaimed by nature, mown paths of grass and clover make it easy to walk between the sculptures. The site slopes down from the entrance to the woodland and the various exhibits are often glimpsed through trees or long grass before they can be properly seen.

From the top of the field, there are impressive views across the surrounding landscape towards the icon hills at Wittenham Clumps. Little Milton church overlooks the higher parts of the site, its imposing stonework contrasting with the modern art. The lower part of the fields is more enclosed and secretive, covered in woodland.

Even those with no interest in art will enjoy a roam around these beautiful fields. Those with an interest in sculpture will be impressed with the current displays which are striking and varied and include works by big names such as Ai Weiwei and Richard Long.
