Close to the village of Barnetby Lincolnshire (mentioned in the Doomsday book of 1086) is a wood and a set of ancient gallows. These were erected in the 17th Century on the orders of King James I as a deterrent to two local feuding families - the Ros's from Melton Ross and the Tyrwhits from Kettleby. This feud had lasted over 300 years, and James I ordered that any subsequent death as a result of this long-standing feud would be treated as murder and the offender would be hanged from the gallows. The adjacent woods are locally known as Gallows Wood.   The painting is done on Professionally made thick wood frame on stretchered Linen canvas.  Please note photographs are taken in dull daylight using a canon 450D in 'flash off' mode with absolutely no editing. These are the most honest pictures I can take but due to monitor differences that you view with there maybe slight changes.  The Painting will come varnished and ready to hang with brass eyelets and cord with sealed in certificate to the rear and signed of course.   Please note edges are painted sympathetically.  Materials Used - Oil on canvas over professionally made deep edge cross braced frame.  The painting will be carefully packed into a custom made box and will be delivered within 3-4 working days within the UK.
