Art in the Barn

Visual artist Imogen Cloet and composer Kit Haigh have been commissioned to create 2 installations in old threshing barn at 18th century farmstead, Green Croft, which sits on Hadrian’s Wall. Art in the Barn will be an artistic intervention surprising those walking the national trail that passes the barn.

On the outer west edges of Northumberland you will find Green Croft, a farmstead located between Greenhead and Gilsland, sitting directly on the line of Hadrian’s Wall with the national trail running through the site

Originally called Foul Town, the buildings date from the early 18th century however the stone from which they are built was likely plundered from Hadrian’s Wall.

Visual artist Imogen Cloët and sound artist Kit Haigh have been commissioned to make a new temporary art installation that reflects on the sights, sounds and essence of these historic farm buildings located within the World Heritage Site.

Presented in the Hay Barn that backs on to the national trail, Art in the Barn is ONLY accessible by foot. So whether visiting Northumberland National Park, having a day out at Birdoswald or Roman Army Museum or downloading one of our suggested walks, make us part of your exploration of the Northumbrian / Cumbrian landscape.

With our onsite pop-up cafe BAIT Box we hope you will feel refreshed, revived and inspired.

Venue: Green Croft
