Eastbourne and Eric Ravilious

Eastbourne pier

Last week I needed to escape from London and swim in the sea so I headed down to Eastbourne on the south coast. I used to live in Eastbourne and the best things about it are

  1. the beach is a lot nicer than the ones in Kent,
  2. you can walk from the town up onto the South Downs without crossing any major roads and
  3. the Towner.

When I left Eastbourne to move to New Zealand, there was a fantastic little gallery called the Towner. The Towner has got a lot bigger, But it still has a great collection of Eric Ravilious's work that you can see for free.

I like his woodcuts the best.
