Sketching at West Tanfield

Four members of the club enjoyed glorioumargaret_westtanfields sunshine for their sketching around The Bull.
Jill and Philip are always welcoming and have hung all the Turner competition paintings in The Bull.
The area was buzzing with cyclists on a charity race but when they left all was peaceful.
We found a very interesting barn in the village where there is plenty to tempt you with wooden objects, cards and other gifts.
John and Margaret sat by the river Ure, Barbara went to the churchyard and Audrey sat by the bridge to get a different angle on the buildings and later went to the lane to sketch one of the doorways.bward_westtanfield

John climbed up the Marmion tower to the wonderful oriel window but was disappointed not to have us acknowledge him waving to us as we were too engrossed with our sketching!
