At another successful Museum Miscellany, at the start of this October, we showed a picture of Mike Allen working on his painting of the old bake house in Easterton. This building might not have been everyone’s choice for it is almost past the stage of being derelict. Yet for some people – and presumably Mike was one of them, it held a fascination and a kind of beauty. It seemed worthy of recording before it finally returned to nature or got subsumed into future developments.
Mike has now finished his work and has given a good quality copy to the museum.
We think Mike has done a fantastic job in recording this delightful old building. We look forward to seeing future Mike Allen watercolours – or indeed art in any medium he might use.
