Additional Information about the Print

The church derives from that at Ingelsham in north Wiltshire. The wooden plough in the foreground is one preserved by Lackham College of Agriculture.

On the finished drawing for his first Elegy for the English Elm (‘The Open Road’), two years earlier, Tanner wrote a line from Thomas Traherne

“Everything was at rest, free and immortal”.
