A bright,cold winter’s day, perfect for a trip inland from the Northumberland coast to take some pictures of the stunning landscape. Passing through the lovely village of Ford reminded me of an earlier visit to the Lady Waterford Hall. Lady Waterford, born in 1818 was an accomplished Pre-Raphaelite artist. She was tutored by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and attended drawing classes by John Ruskin, together with Lady Trevelyn and Kate Greenway. it is also believed she modelled for Sir John Everett Millais in several of his works. After the death of her husband in 1886 from a hunting accident she painted over a 22year period to complete the watercolour panels which now adorn the original school hall in Ford Village.
