The Cloud

A few weeks back we included a post in the blog about ‘The Cloud’; an art installation commemorating the lives lost and affected during and since the First World War. The installation utilised 1.5 tonnes of barbed wire salvaged from Princes Wood, part of Wellesley Woodlands.

The Cloud is now open to the public and can be seen at The Great Hall in Winchester which makes an impressive location for this striking piece of art.

Open until 29th March, it is definitely worth a visit. Look out for the BVCP logo on the information boards at the exhibit.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
