Sussex Series: The Chattri (Small Print)
Fine Art Print, Matte Paper
Limited Edition of 250
One of my Sussex series of landscapes featuring The Chattri war memorial which stands in the South Downs above the Brighton and Hove community of Patcham. The memorial stands on the site where a number of Indian soldiers were cremated during World War I (see Brighton Dome for more on this story). The soldiers would have been patients sent to the Brighton Pavilion which had been converted into a hospital for injured servicemen during the war. The memorial is accessible to walkers and bridleway users in the South Downs National Park.

About this Series
My Sussex series celebrates the landscapes and landmarks of East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton and Hove. These are the places that are important to me, where I go alone for quiet time and to replenish my soul and where I take my family for summer picnics. Some places, like The Chattri, have posed a real challenge for my children and so have become places of pilgrimage, rarely visited but looming large in our imaginations. Other works in the series feature Arundel Castle, Beachy Head Lighthouse, Bramber Castle, Brighton Pavilion, Brighton Pier, Cuckmere Meander, Fishermen's Huts of Hastings, and the Jack and Jill Windmills near Hassocks.
Goes with Brighton Pavilion and Jack and Jill Windmills
