Details

Nurturing Nature is an exhibition exploring the relationship people have with the outdoors in Keswick and the seven Derwent parishes.

During the pandemic, many of us have been relying on outdoor spaces as safe places to exercise, socialise, and simply appreciate nature. The exhibition uses objects from the Museum’s collection to tell stories of how others have used these same spaces throughout history. Pieces on display will include creative responses to the landscape, objects relating to Fitz Park, Blencathra Sanatorium, and the Keswick & District Footpaths Preservation Association, as well as photographs showing how locals engaged with the outdoors during recent lockdowns.
