Harwich, now you're talking.
"Harwich is a town of hurry and business, not much of gaiety and pleasure; yet the inhabitants seem warm in their nests and some of them are very wealthy". - Daniel Defoe
Due to its small size Harwich has a fantastic architectural heritage, and the whole of the older part of the town is a conservation area.
I'm in good company at Harwich as none other than John Constable painted the Harwich lighthouse in 1820.
I choose to paint the quayside.
