There’s a new tree in the gardens of Dronfield Hall Barn.

And it’s different from all the others. For a start it is made of recycled stainless steel. And the leaves have a special purpose, to celebrate special occasions, from weddings to christenings, and birthdays to celebrations of life. Now those special moments can be remembered with an engraved leaf on the new Heritage Tree. Each leaf will be act as a reminder as well as adding to a remarkable sculpture by renowned artists Jason Heppenstall.

Jason has exhibited at The Barn in the past and was eager to accept The Barn’s commission for the new  addition to the garden. Said Jasion: “I love looking for items I can use, and the things people no longer want become the building blocks of my art. “Combined with my love of art and the desire to use other ‘scrap’ I endeavour to create sculptures that are appreciated for their aesthetic appeal as well as the fascination aroused from the eclectic components used.”
