Leith Hill – A resilient landscape?

As part of The Lark Descending, Ackroyd & Harvey discuss the special qualities of Leith Hill, with Georgina Terry, Landscape & Conservation Advisor.

Georgina Terry, Land Management and Conservation Advisor at Natural England will be in conversation with the artists Ackroyd & Harvey about what makes Leith Hill such a special place for wildlife, the underlying geology and how the local landscape of Leith Hill is being managed for resilience in the face of climate change.

This is part of ‘The Lark Descending’ an evolving exhibition built around six key elements: Air | Terra | Soil | Water | Clay | Oil, assuming the multiple layers of the land itself, and referencing the imminent threat to Leith Hill, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, from exploratory oil drilling.

This is a free public event, open to everyone. But places are limited so booking is highly recommended.
