Walk One Hundred and Eleven – Hill End Farm
I intend to try to draw this farm a few times as I saw a planning application on one of my walks to knock down these farm buildings and replace them with new ones. Much of the land and farm buildings round here, until very recently were owned by the Salvation Army, however with declining donations and on the advice of ‘management consultants’ much has now been sold off. The tenants have been evicted, farm workers have received redundancy notices and the bright new future is upon us.
I painted this in the evening from Pound Farm, after my friend Louise’s birthday party so just a quick walk up the hill to beyond the bluebell wood and back.
