Cranes at Muchelney Abbey

During Somerset Art Weeks Cranes appeared all over historic Muchelney Abbey as a celebration and showcase of art work created by local people through the successful partnership of Somerset Art Works and The Great Crane Project.  Over 100 people attended our special event on 22 September.   Many Thanks to English Heritage for hosting the exhibition and Muchelney Church for hosting our evening talk on Cranes.
