If you want to find my entire sketching record of the restoration work at Cliffe Castle Park in 2016 and 2017, the project called Drawing The Work, the link below will take you to all the posts in the series.

Other Cliffe Castle posts that are not directly about the restoration work, but about activities and daily life in the park are archived under the category:

Life In The Landscape

If you’re looking for a particular post or subject, you can always go to the Home page or the foot of any other page, and scroll to the bottom of the screen where you’ll find a Categories drop down menu, and also a Search button.

If you simply want to see the sketches from Drawing The Work on their own, and not read the post – I’ve put a selection of the sketches on the Drawings page.
