Reeds Rains, No1 High Street, Eccleshall.

This is the third in the Eccleshall series. It’s the south side of the High Street, directly opposite the last Eccleshall drawing I posted on this blog.

The street begins with an early 19th century red brick building, listed grade 2 which stands on the corner of High Street and Stafford Street. It’s now home to Reeds Rains Estate Agents. To see this and the rest of these drawings in the full context of this street, please visit the parent website: www.drawingthestreet.co.uk

For more information about the history of these building please refer to – Stafford Borough Council’s link

Over the summer I joined Staffordshire Artist’s Cooperative who share the running of the lovely Gallery at 12 on the High Street. One of the artists, a woodturner named Vance Lupton, was walking past with his deck chair following a monthly meeting. Couldn’t resist including him in my drawing along with our old dog Arran.
