Additional Information about the Print

This was Robin Tanner’s first new plate when he resumed etching in 1970.

The squeeze-belly stile, typical of the area, was in the artist’s boundary hedge. The adjacent gate, a replica of the original ‘Poet’s Gate’, so named by the Revd Francis Kilvert (1840-79), stands at the viewpoint much loved by the diarist. Kilvert was born and served as curate in the nearby village of Kington Burrell.
