Dan Robinson and Artist House (Laura and Bryan Davies) worked with Grizedale Arts between 2005 and 2007 to refurbish and redevelop this isolated, off-grid 16th century farmhouse. Designing, making and installing furniture, staging events, and exchanging stories, Parkamoor’s redevelopment was itself a kind of test centre, echoing Grizedale Arts’ vision for Lawson Park.
Dan is now researching his debut novel, The Two Ys, set in Yorkshire, Colorado, and 17th century Japan, in which one character, a haiku obsessed travelling land-use inspector, could be a possible ghost of Parkamoor. Dan will be in residence at Parkamoor with special guests @Roving_Microscope; serving tea, sharing stories, and closely observing soil from around the site.
