Sketchbook of tours in East Anglia and Devon: pp. 4 - 5. West tower, St Edmund, Southwold, Suffolk 1897
CRE MACKINTOSH, Charles Rennie; (Scottish; 1868-1928)
pencil on paper
37.2 x 13.4
inscr. c.r.: "SOUTHWOLD / TOWER / SUFFOLK."
The 15th-century Perpendicular Gothic church was largely built after a fire in 1430. The west tower is in four stages with knapped flint flushwork ornamentation either side of the west door and above the great west window. On the lower page, to the right of his drawing of the west window, Mackintosh has depicted its jamb and mullion mouldings, the battlemented parapet of the stair turret of the south aisle, and the south aisle's west window. At bottom centre is the jamb moulding of the west doorway and at bottom right the moulding of the base of the tower. The pages have been incorrectly numbered "6-7" in an unknown hand.
