“I am really excited to have Sarah’s wonderful paintings on show here at Greatmoor. Her work brings industrial facilities like Greatmoor to a new audience in an imaginative and original way”

Sarah Moncrieff

“Greatmoor is an impressive yet hidden part of Buckinghamshire’s landscape.  The facility combines a strong architectural presence with a commitment to community and environmental benefits. Painting Greatmoor has given me the chance to present this facility in a previously unseen light and to celebrate its endeavours.”
