The Old Way A trio 300x400, 200x200 and 800x300 Real earths from Derbyshire, East Anglia and Ireland

As a young person I lived very near the Derbyshire countryside and a favourite walk was over Stanage Edge, where ancient flagstones trace the route and a great timber pole set in a millstone grit outcrop marks the summit. It is believed by some to be a Roman road so I tried to convey something of an ancient military mood through the design. The colours are largely those of the local earth but the Irish lilac brought the heathery moor to life.
