In Their Footsteps App

Try out a new self-guided walk from Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft around the village in the footsteps of the celebrated artists and craftspeople who lived and worked here from the early 20th Century.

Commissioned by the South Downs National Park, this walk is available through the app In Their Footsteps which can be downloaded to your phone or tablet from the App Store or Google Play. It guides you on a circuit which can be made shorter or longer depending on your appetite for walking! Featuring interviews with descendants of some of the original artists and craftspeople, and with images from the collection of Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, this walk brings together the past and the present in a single experience.

See where the artists lived and worked and admire the fantastic views of the landscape which inspired them, and still inspire artists today.

If you have children with you you can also download a family activity sheet to help you look at nature like an artist.
