’the gallery @ Ridware Arts’

The gallery is situated in the heart of rural Staffordshire, surrounded by open farmland and bounded by the River Blyth. Built on the site of the original farmhouse, the gallery is part of Ridware Arts and the location of Deb Walker’s studio.

The farm itself dates back to the nineteenth century and is still a working arable farm today, whilst also housing a busy community of diverse, individual businesses. Web: www.blythehousefarm.co.uk 
The local area is renowned for walking and fishing and is only 9 miles north of the historic city of Lichfield. In a world of mass production ‘the gallery’ has a passion for the individual and unique, with a direct link to the artist or maker.
