John Constable

John Constable Flatford Bridge Cottage exhibition at the National Trust centre.  Just come back from a walking weekend in Suffolk roughly followed the Flatford route published in Guardian.  It really feels like walking inside Constable’s painting with the rivers, calves, cottages, bridges you name it. http://www.theguardian.com/travel/2012/may/13/walkingholiflatford-and-constable-country-suffolk-and-essex-walk
