Harrison's Garden @ The Ropewalk

There’s not much going on in the garden at this time of year. But at the Ropewalk in Barton-on-Humber one particular garden will soon be blooming.

And from January 19, there is the chance to visit what is a unique creation, a landscape made up of clocks of every kind.

The brainchild of international installation artist Luke Jerram, Harrison’s Garden – which honours Barrow-on-Humber inventor John Harrison – will feature hundreds of clocks laid out in swathes of beds and borders.

Harrison’s Garden has recently completed a tour of National Trust properties and was due to be dismantled. However, a chance meeting with Luke led the artist to donate the exhibition to the Better Barrow Community Project which is raising money for a statue of John Harrison – and to offer to set it up.

The Ropewalk in Barton-on-Humber agreed to stage the exhibition and is now awaiting the imminent arrival of more than 2000 clocks.

Harrison’s Garden opens at 10am on January 19 and after it closes on March 24, Colin Young from Golding Young and Mawer in Lincoln – and Bargain Hunt fame – has agreed to auction the most valuable timepieces, while the remainder will be offered as momentoes for a small donation.

Luke Jerram is known for his innovative ideas, most recently his Museum of the Moon project seen in Hull.

“We were fortunate to meet Luke when Harrison’s Garden was at Gunby Hall,” explained Trevor Millum, chairman of the Better Barrow Community Project. “The exhibition was moving on to Penrhyn Castle after which it would have been dismantled so we’re really pleased it will finish in John Harrison’s backyard.

“We were also fortunate that Ropewalk had spare space in January to stage it for us. Golding Young were very interested when we contacted them about an auction of the best clocks and they are meeting Luke while he is at the Ropewalk.”
