Product Description:

Places of Pilgrimage is a record of the travels of artist Ian Scott Massie as he seeks out the spirit of place of over seventy locations around Britain. In words and paintings he explores the personality of these sites explaining for example what he feels on the spot where Saint Cuthbert's coffin rooted itself to the earth or the visions conjured up on crossing the sands to Holy Island. Some places which have already been interpreted by people such as A. E. Houseman Vaughn Williams and Stanley Spencer are presented afresh. Some are very personal choices: the landscapes painted by Paul Nash (who grew up in the same area as the artist); the village where Laurie Lee wrote Cider with Rosie; the boathouse where Dylan Thomas composed Under Milk Wood and the industrial landscape which inspired L. S. Lowry. Some are traditional pilgrimage sites like Lindisfarne Durham and Canterbury; some are places which have other holds over the visitor - the stones of Avebury the battlefield of Culloden the tree where Robin Hood assembled his merry men.
