RCPS has been lucky to resume their Tuesday painting/picnic days out recently. One location visited has been Langstone Harbour, luckily the day was very bright, although with quite a breeze at times. The low tide exposed the remains of the Wadeway, this footpath has probably been in existence since pre-Roman times. At low tide this was the access to Hayling Island for walking or riding until the first wooden bridge was finished in 1824.
Many members enjoyed painting the view of the Old Mill with its tough black tarred outer skin. A working mill until around the First World War, at one time owned by the artist Flora Twort and so much a part of the landscape at Langstone.
Spokes person for the group Jan Roblin said “More paintings can be seen on our web site www.rowlandscastlepaintingsociety.co.uk of the various locations recently visited by members.” Rowlands Castle Painting Society is a friendly, open to all abilities Painting Society which welcomes new members.
