The final of six FREE Local Landscape Hero walks, offering fascinating insight into the local landscape which inspired famous artworks,are taking place from September until November.

The CAVLP Heritage Local Landscape Heroes Project has been very successful in identifying over 80 pieces of art from the Clyde and Avon Valley which can be seen in a virtual art trail on the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership website.  Much of the art featured on the trail was created in the 19th century and depicts a fascinating changing landscape. 

The CAVLP Heritage team have now arranged a series of six different Local Landscape Heroes trails for local communities to join and enjoy.  Each guided walk is between 1 and 5 miles in length and all are an easy ramble through woodland or country lanes.  Running from the 30th September to 4th November, there are a range of different walks for people to enjoy including:

Saturday 30th September ‘Boss Oak to Old Mill’ 3.55 miles

Friday 13th October ‘Tannery to Tolbooth’ 1.44 miles

Friday 27th October ‘Cadzow Clothes Drying’ 1.19 miles

Saturday 28th October ‘Meikle Burn’ 4.44 miles

Friday 3rd November ‘The Seasons of Crossford’ 0.50 miles

Saturday 4th November ‘The Falls’ 2.15 miles

Organised by CAVLP Heritage, these guided walks will trace the artistic footsteps of local landscape heroes and track down the subjects used in selected paintings.  The group will photograph a version of each landscape view, adding in frames and comparing them to the original works of art.  The group will also be guided to conduct a walkover survey and record any archaeological sites encountered on the trail.

Last in the series is ‘The Falls’ on Saturday 4th November at the New Lanark Falls of Clyde and will be roughly 3 miles long. Paintings will include ‘The Falls of Clyde, Corra Linn’ by Jacob More, ‘Falls in the River Clyde’ by Edmund Marriner Gill and ‘Falls of Clyde’ by Alexander Nasmyth. Participants should meet at the end of New Lanark Road by the small shop. Walking boots and weather appropriate clothing are advisable.
