Castle Farm, Terrington St John, near King's Lynn

Barbara Jones's enthusiasm for the old 'popular arts' associated with rural life and her dismay at their neglect and decay are apparent in this simple image of a Norfolk farmhouse. The property seems eerily empty, the only living presence that of a dog lying in the grass and a cat curled up on a windowsill. One shutter hanging askew seems to foreshadow the dilapidation that will overtake the farm.
