What's the Story? - The rather unusual square stone St Aldhelm’s Chapel, believed to have been built in the late 12th century, stands 354 feet above sea level on the wonderful exposed and wild headland, which gives it its name. The surrounding grassland is filled with wild flowers including the early Spider Orchid, the first Orchid to flower in the UK. The simplicity of the chapel appealed to Richard along with its wild and isolated location when it was suggested he should paint it by a volunteer coastguard at the local station.

Artist Richard Watkin paints the evocative locations and landscapes of Dorset from the beaches and towns of Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch to the dramatic Jurassic Coastline and picturesque Purbeck villages. He paints with acrylics in a bold graphical style, his travel print collection evokes a sense of nostalgia, a time when the pace of life was slower and the sun was always shinning!
