Brightwells Yard

Brightwells Yard is a regeneration scheme in the town centre of Farnham.

The finished development will make the area a hub for leisure and evening entertainment, with a new six-screen Reel cinema and a variety of restaurants and retail units.  It will also bring 239 new homes to the town – with a third being marketed as shared ownership with SO Resi & Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing

Artist Kerry Lemon’s series of unique hand-drawn illustrations linking the past, present and future of craft in Farnham will be transposed onto the surface of 13 paving stones to form a public art trail which people can take rubbings from. The trail will start from the pedestrian link in East Street, towards the river, and will weave past the craft figures.

Both installations will reflect Farnham’s rich craft history and celebrate its eminent position as a world class destination for craft.
