Paintings of the sea from Bexhill and surrounding area, October 2011.
I have visited this wood often this summer – it is a five minute walk from where I live. It is only a couple of acres in extent but I always seem to find a subject when I go there. Only people walking their dogs pass through. There is a broad path crossing the wood […]
I had never visited this area until a few years ago and had the usual misconceptions. In fact the Clyde is spectacularly beautiful – like a Norwegian fjord – with fascinating and varied islands and lochs and with the most tremendous city at its head.
Behind the railway sheds at Bridge Way as you enter Hastings on the Bexhill road there is a group of fisherman’s huts, winches and boats.I often stop here to paint when cycling to Hastings.
Fishing Boats at Pevensey There are still quite a few of the characteristic clinker built fishing boats left along this part of the coast – many of them in picturesque states of decay.
Gillham Wood was donated to the Wildlife Trust by Mrs. Dorothy Constance in 1973. It is wildly overgrown for its housing estate setting. Near to the track through the wood (the ‘Main Ride’), there are a couple of ponds which are bomb craters from the War.
