FULL MOON CIRCLE

Houghton Hall was host to the very first item featured on Culture365, Skyspace, and today, we’re taking a closer look at one of its many permanent features. Richard Long’s Full Moon Circle was commissioned by the Marquess of Cholmondeley in the 2000s and consists of a large circle made from Cornish slate at the end of a path mowed into the grass.

Richard Long is a Turner Prize-winning artist from Bristol who works with large sculptures from primarily local materials.
