Padstow, oil on canvas, 60cm by 50cm

Copyright 1984 Peter Froome

This painting was exhibited at the Royal Society of Marine Artists exhibition, London, in 1984. It shows one of the few brick-built buildings in Cornwall, built right on the quayside at Padstow. Unfortunately it became unsafe, and has been replaced by a modern copy.

Padstow was founded by the Celtic monk St Petroc.
