Projects / Lawson Park Farm

2009 ongoing

Lawson Park's Open Weekend in June '19

We develop all aspects of the site to reflect the ethos of the organisation and act as a testing ground, ideas development and working space for many of Grizedale's projects.

Lawson Park has four live / work rooms, plentiful communal space for eating and relaxing, a library and a warden's cottage. There are vegetable and fruit gardens, polytunnels, an orchard and various outbuildings. Residents and staff are expected to work on the land and gardens regularly, and the building can be rented out periodically for small conferences and events.
Lawson Park also houses a growing collection of notable British design and craft objects, the Lawson Park Collection, in use daily by staff and residents.
There are a number of artist's commissions within the house and on the land, including:

Though the site is not open to the general public, we invite interested people to contact us to arrange a visit.
