Riverside, Beccles

Riverside, Beccles

Beccles, a peaceful riverside town at the southern extreme of the Norfolk Broads, basks in summer sunlight. The strong light and almost photographic quality are typical of the watercolours of Edward Walker. This is the only East Anglian scene he contributed to the Recording Britain project; most of his works for the project focused on Richmond, Surrey, where he was living at the time.
