A visit to Cookham
When he was s student at the Slade, the visionary painter Stanley Spencer, who regular readers of this blog will know is one of my all time favourites, was known by the name of his home village, the Berkshire then-hamlet of Cookham. This is a mere glimpse of the sights that we saw on a recent trundle there.
And if this scene looks familiar.....
This is probably why...
OK, maybe it wasn't familiar, but it *is* the same place.
