Karen Rann: Drawing with Altitude II

On the west coast of the Inishowen Peninsula, just east of Fort Dunree, lies a small hill that played a huge role in changing how relief was portrayed on Ordnance Survey maps. In 1839, the land around Mullagharry hill was chosen for Ordnance Survey hill-sketchers’ earliest experiments in contouring.

Dr Karen Rann has been researching and recreating their activities through walking, sketching and model making. During Drawing with Altitude II, there will be opportunities to meet the artist and take part in walks, talks, and making activities, all geared towards exploring the rolling hills of Donegal through mapmaker’s eyes.
