Close To Home - Doddington
18 Newgate Street, Doddington © Anita Davies
I have travelled through the village of Doddington for the past 16 years and only now, through this project, do I learn of this fabulous house hidden up a short drive in Newgate Street.
I sketched this one from my truck, it was a warm day but I was able to park facing the house and sit with my windows open just after taking Harry to school one morning. The drive is narrow so I felt much safer behind the wheel, using it to prop my watercolour block upon.
I love everything about this house, from it's character and style to the untold stories it seemed to whisper to me while I sketched.
What a find!
