Donnington Castle Newbury Fine Art Print
The ruins of medieval Donnington Castle are in the village of Donnington just north of Newbury.
Built in 1386 the castle has a fascinating history. It has been in the hands of the Chaucer Family, entertained both Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I, was held in an 18 month siege by Royalists in the First English Civil War before being surrendered and ordered to be destroyed by Parliament in 1646. What survives today is the original gate house.
Always a tourist attraction, people from all around the world - and those from just around the corner, are regular visitors.
Influenced by vintage travel posters of the 1920s to 1940s, the print captures the presence of the Castle and combines a fresh modern graphic style with stunning colours that bring it completely up to date and give the viewer the impression of the area at its best; on a summer's day when the weather is just right for climbing up the hill and taking in the sight. It evokes a warm sense of time past and present.
The print makes a lovely gift for you, your family or friends for Christmas, birthday, anniversary, retirement, moving out of the area or to send to loved ones who've relocated elsewhere around the world
