Companion Stones

Companion Stones

Companion Stones is a set of twelve matching sculptures for the 18th century Guide Stoops of Derbyshire. Like the stoops, the stones bare inscriptions, not to the nearest market town, but towards the future. They draw attention to the moors and the tricky environmental terrain we have yet to navigate. The project was devised and and led for Arts in the Peak by Charles Monkhouse working with poets and artists of the Peak together with the Peak District National Park Authority, National Trust, Chatsworth Estates and other landowners.
