Next stop, East Somerset Railway

Today we are installing at East Somerset Railway in Cranmore!

Come and see us from tomorrow, Wednesday 21 July.

The station a perfect venue for a project about movement and transportation.

A heritage Brunel steam railway, part of the Strawberry line, the steam and sounds conjure imaginings of past travel. A connection to the arts can be found via wildlife artist David Shepherd (his love of steam trains brought him to East Somerset Railway to paint them).

Mandy Shepherd recently opened the newly refurbished and nostalgic Museum and Waiting Room, the setting for the art in cases.

  • Drawing from Cases: daily when open
