Writ in Water is a major architectural artwork by Mark Wallinger in collaboration with Studio Octopi, which celebrates the enduring legacy of Magna Carta at Runnymede.
It was commissioned in association with Situations as part of Trust New Art, National Trust’s programme of contemporary arts inspired by the places it looks after.
Writ in Water has been made possible with National Lottery funding through Arts Council England and the generous support of Art Fund, the Sigrid Rausing Trust, the Henry Moore Foundation and Lord and Lady Lupton. With additional support from Iwan and Manuela Wirth, Valeria and Rudolf Maag-Arrigoni and Harris Calnan.
Located on the meadows at Runnymede, Surrey, Writ in Water is open seven days a week and is free to enter. For further information please visit nationaltrust.org.uk/runnymede
