Though opened in May, I hadn't made the trip into Wakefield to visit the much lauded The Hepworth, in many ways wanting to avoid the crowds, though my visit on a rainy Saturday morning illustrated that the visitors are still in abundance, though plenty of space for quiet contemplation.

Photography is only allowed in the plaster gallery, which makes you look and take in the pieces far more. other highlights for me were some stunning pieces from Ben Nicholson.
