Wormbridge, Herefordshire, 2012
Wormbridge, Herefordshire, 2012Mr Teddy Clive commissioned this bird's-eye view of Wormbridge to show how the property may have looked shortly after it was built in the early 17th-century.  Wormbridge was destroyed by fire in the mid 18th-century and only a simple plan and elevation survives to show how the building and garden appeared. This painting is a reconstruction of the hamlet. The only buildings still standing are the church and the barns on the opposite side of the road from the main house. The faux paper notes fixed to the bottom part of the painting are trompe d'oeil effects which depict the plan of the house, the facades of the stables and a map of the gardens.
