HIDDEN CANTERBURY

 

In the late 1980s, local artist Tom Vine undertook a project entitled 'Hidden Canterbury.'  His subjects were just that: the more unusual, lesser-known views of the City. And now, many of his original pen and ink sketches are being made available for sale, for the first time. Inevitably, many reflect drastic changes. Each study measures 30 x 24 cm, on good art card or paper, and are unmounted. There are over 50 originals, some of which are shown here, in several sections. Others are listed, but scanned samples of all can be viewed upon request.

 St. Nicholas Church Gate, Rodmersham, Sittingbourne, Kent by Laurie Tomlin

 Laurie Tomlin: CHURCH GATE, 1981 – £25.00

 

 

 

This is an original watercolour measuring 24.5 x 16 cm (10 x 6.75"). It depicts the lichgate of St. Nicholas Church, Rodmersham in 1981. There was probably a place of worship on this site in the early 12th century, and it is recorded that Henry II gifted the church to the influential Order of the Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem. Their liberal spending over many years has resulted in a church displaying a variety of architectural styles.

 

Looking up Stockers Hill, Rodmersham, Sittingbourne, Kent, by Laurie Tomlin

 Laurie Tomlin: LOOKING UP STOCKERS HILL, 1982 – £25.00

This is an original watercolour measuring 26.5 x 16.2 cm (10.75 x 6.5"). This steep, winding hill leads out of the Highsted Valley and up to Rodmersham Green. The area depicted here will change drastically if the plans for the M2 to A2 Link Road ever come to pass.
