At last the sun is out!

Horsmonden Church and Oasts in the Weald
Watercolour 11 inches by 6.5

This winter it seemed as if the rain would never stop, then late last week and since the weather in the South of England has really improved and the sun has been shining.

It inspired me to get out and go to the Weald of Kent and there, near Horsmonden Church your will find this Springtime scene.   I hope you like my interpretation of it!

The Church dedicated to St Margaret is about 2 miles from the Village centre. This is attributed to the centre of the village moving in the 17th Century to where a foundry had been established by John Browne. It was a large employer and the village thus migrated to be nearer the foundry. The foundry closed in 1685, but the village has remained at the  Heath.

The term Weald is an old English word for Forest as this area was once heavily forested, even today there are many fine woods and copses across the area.

Anyway I hope wherever you are the weather is fine, we certainly hope it stays fine here and everywhere will get a chance to recover from all that winter rain.

Enjoy your travels
