Back in 2002, Country Life Magazine asked its readers to vote for Britain's best view. Five judges put the nominations in order of merit by judging them from readers' suggestions.

 

Out of five striking and beloved locations, the view of Salisbury Cathedral from the meadows of the river Avon was voted Britain's best.

 

That’s where we will be painting.

 

After the sudden death of his wife, the Romantic painter John Constable (1776-1837) painted what has been called “one of the jewels of British art”: Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows.

Constable painted the cathedral many times in his life. With an arching rainbow and a moody landscape, this 1831 version stands out as his
pièce de résistance.

John Constable's Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows, painted in 1831.
We'll be painting from the same meadows.

 
There are several spots along the meadows with idyllic views of the river, the vegetation, and the bridge. We'll set up our atelier there.
There are a few spots available.
The exact spot where Constable painted the cathedral is marked with a plaque along the Harnham & Water Meadow Trail.
