This is an acrylic painting of my favourite view of Hexham, when approached from the North, crossing the River Tyne. I lived in this market town in Northumberland for 48 years. It is where I spent most of my childhood, as did my children.
To the right can be seen Hexham Abbey, originating as a Benedictine Abbey on that site in AD674. It was substantially destroyed by Danes in AD875 and rebuilt, in Norman style in about 1200 as an Augustine Priory.
