Christ Church Meadow in Flood

This charming miniature etching by Wilfred Ball shows the flooded Christ Church Meadow over 120 years ago.

A familiar scene today after many of us battled to get to work this morning with flood warnings and road closures across the city.

For those of you who are stuck at home due to the weather why not browse our website for some Christmas inspiration? Alternatively, if you can brave the miserable journey into town, we have a fantastic display of new stock at the gallery including a range of stunning Japanese woodblock prints that can't help but cheer you up!
