Artist's Description

Wickham in Hampshire is one of those rare gems that has retained all its picturesque charm but is still a proper working village, not just a tourist destination. On The Square, whose layout dates from medieval times and which is very much the heart of the place, you can find an independent butcher, baker and pharmacist, not to mention a florist, a sweet shop, a dry cleaner, a fish and chip shop, and so the list goes on. In short, the residents can find everything for day to day life on the doorstep without the need to get in a car. And of course in an old English village the old market square is bound to have a fine old pub or two. This one is The King’s Head, a coaching inn dating from the 18th century with later 19th century modifications, beautifully and sensitively refurbished in 2004. It is amongst English Heritage’s Grade II listed buildings. Anyone for a pint of Fuller’s best bitter?

(And can anyone suggest with any confidence which particular king is portrayed on the inn’s sign: presumably he is a medieval English monarch, but which one, exactly?)
