This print has some foxing evident over the image and margins, and is with partial plate marks. Midhurst is a charming little town on the banks of the river Rother, in the heart of the South Downs National Park in West Sussex, and is home to the Park's new Visitor Centre. Along the Midhurst Town Trail visitors discover historic Tudor buildings gourmet restaurants and cafes, independent shops and one-off boutiques and over 100 listed buildings with charming local character. Some of the South Downs finest vineyards are nearby. Despite its small size, Midhurst today is a bustling market town and truly a little gem, nestled in a beautifully picturesque and nationally recognised area of outstanding natural beauty. The surrounding South Downs area is equally complimented by wonderfully diverse countryside including acres of attractive downland, woodland, wetland and heath. Numerous National Trust properties, parks and museums also lie within a stone's throw of Midhurst giving the area a distinct diversity of culture and liveliness whilst retaining a quintessentially English character. The town of Midhurst is also the home of The Midhurst Gallery, where we have been established for over 30 years.
