The Alfred Wallis and Ben Nicholson exhibition at Compton Verney is small but definitely worth seeing.
But first a look at the renovated ice house.

using household paints
being a former marine scrap merchant he found this form of recycling natural.

A walk around the grounds after lunch and we come upon the giant horse by Marcia Farquhar
A last look at the bridge before we head for home.
