Castlerigg stone circle. High above Keswick in the Lake District stand the surviving 38 stones of this Bronze Age stone circle. This dramatic view is roughly from the South, looking towards Skiddaw and Saddleback. Painted from a field sketch after severe harrassment by cows! (We were lucky, sometime in 1997 a woman had to be rushed to hospital after being attacked by a cow! It's true - Honest)

The gatehouse from Stokesay castle in Shropshire. The castle itself is a fortified manor house and is situated just behind where this view is taken from!

Stokesay castle in Shropshire.The gatehouse pictured above can be seen in the background of this painting. It is situated on the outskirts of Craven Arms.

Dunstanburgh castle on the Northumberland coast.

A painting of some of the stones at Stonehenge, Wiltshire. Probably the best known stone circle in the World. Thankfully, in this picture, painted from one of English Heritage's publications, you can't see the 'fence' erected around the stones to keep people away from them. Original size 10" x 7"

Towering over the River Coquet, in Northumberland, stand the impressive ruins of Warkworth Castle. This is some detail from a larger painting, which sadly, went rather wrong..... Fortunately, this bit was still quite good!
