In The Balance: Famous Trust in Nature Sculpture Leaves RHS Garden Rosemoor
by RHS
May 19, 2016

For six months the largest piece in the Winter Sculpture Exhibition at RHS Garden Rosemoor, Devon, has been welcoming visitors. But on Tuesday the 10-tonne sculpture was loaded up ready to go to its new home at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show (24 – 28 May 2016)

The art of balancing stones has been developed by sculptor Adrian Gray. His famous Trust In Nature sculpture, that was originally set up on Bodmin Moor and featured on BBC1 The One Show, came to Rosemoor in November last year and has since been admired by more than 60,000 visitors. On Tuesday, it was lifted onto a low loader and set off for its long journey to West London in time for Chelsea, where it will feature on Adrian’s Stone Balancing stand (FR342).

Rosemoor’s annual Winter Sculpture Exhibition is always an amazing draw for visitors. Set among the framework of the garden in winter, there is always an eclectic mix of sculptures, made from a great variety of media, the vast majority of which are for sale.

The 2016 exhibition starts on 19 November and continues until 19 February 2017. New for this year, the display will be enhanced further by The Magical Illuminated Winter Garden (from 18 November – 10 January) where visitors can see Rosemoor in an entirely different light. Several thousand lights will be used to create a magical trail around the Winter Garden. The garden will open until 8.30pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with half price entry after 4pm.
