John Cleal’s Door


This door of an old chapel was made by the artist and poet John Cleal and represents his own family.

He took up residence in Lower Fishguard in the 1960’s and ran a workshop and gallery and raised his children here.

Cleal wrote this poem, which embodies something very important to People Need Nature:

“We must teach our children
To smell the Earth
To taste the rain
To touch the wind
To see things grow
To hear the sun rise and night fall
To care”
