Walking in the Tas valley

I was walking in the Tas valley a couple of days ago, an area I love with its unspoilt tranquillity and sense of history. This was, after all, where the Iceni lived and farmed and where the Romans came and built a town known as Venta Icenorum  - market place of the Iceni – on the river bank. Sadly, only the walls of the town survive.

I wondered whether I could capture the essence of that part of the valley and what it means to me from memory and have spent the last two days making a piece of art that attempts to do just that. I thought I would share it with you. Perhaps it might encourage you to visit this lovely part of Norfolk.
