Old stone footbridge over stream. Painting by Paul Talbot-Greaves

Bridging Hippins Clough

Watercolour on Saunders Waterford Paper 25 x 25cm


This bridge is part of the old causeway routes that crossed the Pennine Hills. Now used as footpaths, Causeways were the main roads of the industrial revolution, set across fields and moors to connect farms, hamlets, villages and towns. Trains of packhorses would have used these routes and bridges such as this one have hollowed out grooves where the horses hooves have worn away the stone over hundreds of years.


This painting is for sale unframed, however I do offer a standard framing service for a nominal charge. My watercolours are set in a contemporary white frame, with a white mount to show the artwork off at its best. Framed paintings are only available for collection from my home studio. To discuss framing or collection, please get in touch.
