More about this scene

Caption for Salisbury, De Vaux Place 1928: The Cathedral viewed from the south has been a favourite subject for artists - including, of course, Constable. This particular view is from the Old Mill at Harnham, and shows the Mill itself, the river and the water meadows as well as the Cathedral. Harnham Mill is a very old building, dating from around 1500, which has had a number of different uses (it is currently a restaurant and guest house). Note the flint-and-ashlar chequered walling - the best example of this technique in the area. Like the first photograph in this book, the timeless beauty of this scene has remained unchanged for more than half a millennium.

For a time I worked at Woolworths on the jewellery counter and at lunch times I would stroll around the market eating my steak and kidney pie with the gravy dribbling down my chin. My first job was in Robert Stokes in the office, (...Read full memory)
