TM0733 : Constable's favourite church tower

taken 10 years ago, near to East Bergholt, Suffolk, Great Britain

Constable's favourite church tower
Constable's favourite church tower
must have been that of Dedham's TM0533 : St Mary's church, judging by the frequency with which it appears in the background of his pictures. It is visible from many points in Dedham Vale - compare TM0533 : Dedham across flooded marshes. Many of the best views are visible from land that is now TM0733 : Safe in Trustworthy hands.
Some people assert that he sometimes moved the position of the tower in his paintings to maximise its effect as a focal point. The view here is across the end of the small Riber valley. The house in the foreground is the recently extended Gosnall's Farm.
The view is foreshortened by the zoom setting used.
