Sketchbook of tours in East Anglia and Devon: pp. 14 - 15. West tower, St Agnes, Cawston, Norfolk, 1896 and details of St Edmund, Southwold, Suffolk
CRE MACKINTOSH, Charles Rennie; (Scottish; 1868-1928)
pencil on paper
37.2 x 13.4
d. and inscr. c.r.: "SOUTHWOLD -1897 -" and b.r. "CAUSTON. [sic] / 1896."
Despite Mackintosh's reference to Southwold, this is a study of the west tower at Cawston, built wholly in stone in the Perpendicular Gothic style in the late 14th - early 15th century by Michael de la Pole, Earl of Suffolk. The tower has no battlements or finials on its parapet. The post and boot scraper at centre left are unidentified. The mouldings at bottom right are from the great west window and west door. The tracery study between them is from the niches which stand either side of the great west window. The pages have been inaccurately numbered "16" and "17" in an unknown hand.
