From 25 May 2024 to February 2025

New for 2024, our annual exhibition in the William Bone Building presents the captivating photography of Cumbrian artist-farmer Amy Bateman.

Over a year, she captured the lives and stories of a wide variety of people farming in this breathtaking landscape. From isolated farmsteads unchanged over generations to businesses at the cutting-edge of innovation; from worldclass sheep-breeders to award-winning cheese-makers, Forty Farms is a visual record of farming at a moment of profound change.
