Two more designs for National Trust

Last Friday I was pleased to deliver a big box of stock to the imposing Houghton Mill, near Huntingdon.  It's a fully working 18th Century Mill with a fascinating history.

I had a private tour with the manager, Stuart and discovered that it was a youth hostel at one time.  A millennium funded project restored the water wheel and you can now see it milling weekly.

Unusually I have  designed two versions of the cards and coasters, one shows the mill in summer with blue sky and leaves on the tress and the other one is more wintry.  It will be interesting to see which one proves most popular.

Wicken Fen Nature Reserve already stock some of my designs and for a while they have been asking me for something that features their Wind Pump.  I finally had time to produce this drypoint print with watercolour and think it works really well.

They are all available on my website in limited numbers.
