I grew up in the village of Southowram, near Halifax, West Yorkshire. It is situated high up on a hill and is semi- rural – much of it grazed farmland. At one time, though, it was also a hub of coal mining activity, and packhorses would haul huge loads around the countryside over the tops. This little lane, or ‘snicket’ was probably one of those packhorse routes, and a way to work for the miners.
This acrylic painting was created after a visit in winter and a particularly cold and hazardous trek down the snow filled snickets. I got the feeling that we were the only people to have walked down that lane for a very long time.
