PUBLISHED: 11:54 05 June 2018
James Merriott is continuing his watercolour tour of Essex and this time he has been putting Great and Little Braxted on canvas
ALL SAINTS CHURCH Within the grounds of the impressive Braxted Hall and very worthy of a mention.
FIVE GABLES COTTAGE The colourful hedges either side of the pathway, take the viewer from the foreground to the immaculate cottage.
LITTLE BRAXTED WATERMILL Man and boy I have always loved watermills and found this one particularly pretty on the River Blackwater, complete with its conspicuous lucum.
ST NICHOLAS CHURCH I chose to paint the back view of the church, emphasising the graceful rounded church wall.
THE BEACON AND RIVER BLACKWATER One of the County's finest views, with the beacon a centrepiece for the fabulous view to the Blackwater.
THE GREEN MAN INN One of many lovely buildings 'sprinkled' amid the beautiful landscapes of the Braxteds.
