You may have noticed that a new 'Turner Exhibition' is currently on view at Tate Liverpool, a location easily accessible from the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge.

The exhibition features some of Turner's most celebrated paintings alongside his sketchbooks and works on paper.

The exhibition runs until summer 2023.

A reminder, in case you haven't seen our previous article relating to Joseph Mallord William Turner's connection with the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge.

As early as 1801, Turner was to find inspiration in the dramatic landscape of the Ridge.

Turner drew several sketches of Beeston Castle within his sketchbook; a sketchbook which was later bequeathed to the nation.

The sketchbook was obviously the preparatory work for the scene which included Beeston Castle and which was painted some years later.
