YSP, in West Bretton, near Wakefield, displays work by British and international artists, including the likes of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.

It's collection of works by Moore is one of the largest open-air displays of his bronzes in Europe.

The sculpture park occupies the parkland of Bretton Hall and straddles the border of West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.

YSP opened in 1977 and was the UK's first sculpture park, based on the temporary open air exhibitions organised in London parks from the 1940s to 1970s, by the Arts Council and London County Council (and later Greater London Council).

The 'gallery without walls' has a changing exhibition programme, rather than permanent display as seen in other UK sculpture parks
