St Leonard's, Hartley Mauditt
This Oil painting, on canvas, shows St Leonard's church on a calm sunny afternoon, mid-summer, in the deserted medieval village of Hartley Mauditt. The church dates back to the time of William the Conqueror and the village has belonged to several English kings over the centuries. Legend has it that the village was deserted after Lord Stowell had the manor house torn down, to prevent his wife living there, because he preferred to live in the city against her wishes. It's said that she still haunts the village to this day. The painting has captured the soft light of the afternoon and a little of the evocative emotions you feel when you pass through the village and pause for a moment by the pond. 400mm x 310mm x 15mm
