View from the Church by B.R.Hammond

This drawing first appeared in the society's publication "Pen Sketches of Barwick-in-Elmet" by the late Bart Hammond who was a founder member of the Society.

The drawing dates from the 1980's. Bart described the scene as follows:

		Emerging from the Church gates one is
		facing due west, looking along a short
		street called The Cross, which includes
		on the right, Church Row, the Black 
		Swan Inn and the old shop and houses
		beyond.  On the left, the high wall of
		old brickwork encloses the former 
		Rectory and Coach House gardens.
		A good view of the Maypole and Cross
		is seen, with Hall Tower Hill and the
		Gascoigne Arms.
