The central panel features an extract from the poem ‘Pennine Ramble’ written by Ebron. It was first published in “A Lancashire Miscellany”, a newspaper column featured in weekend editions of the Oldham Chronicle between 1956 and 1959.

The words around the outer border depict a memory from my own childhood of visiting my Grandparents in Stacksteads, Lancashire.

On sunny days they would pack a picnic and say ‘Let’s go up clough’. For me this meant a short walk up the footpath, past the farm with a Border Collie dog and ducks, over the stile and through the broken dry-stone walls, followed by a steep climb up to the clough and the brook where the water flowed fresh from the moors. I’ve spent many summers since sitting on the same rock, under the tree and paddling my feed in the cool water.

Size 21 x 27 cm. Hand embroidered and hand stitched with vintage Sylko thread on cotton cloth Eco printed with leaves and petals from my lockdown garden in Summer 2020. Designed during Spring 2021 UK lockdown.

Moors of Home is part of a body of work about my Lancashire roots.
