The Old Rectory, Rhossili


Built around the mid-nineteenth century, The Old Rectory has had an intriguing past – from its role as a base for radar workers during the Second World War, to starring in the hit TV series Torchwood, and of course the inevitable stories of it being haunted. These days, it’s a popular holiday home run by The National Trust.

The house is much photographed given its picturesque setting, but for this painting I’ve taken a more unusual viewpoint from the top of the downs that form the backdrop to the house. I liked the composition with part of the sweeping curve of Rhossili beach in top left hand corner of the picture, shown with the tide out.
