Britannia Inn, Elterwater

Britannia Inn, Elterwater (Julie Colclough Signpost Series)

Surely one of the most loved pubs in the Lake District, this is ‘The Brit’ aka The Britannia Inn at Elterwater.

This painting in Julie Colclough’s signpost series is painted over old maps, local newspaper cuttings (Westmorland Gazette) and even a paper napkin from the pub. Julie has been painting these unique images for decades and our website cannot do justice to the amazing detail. Framed 73cm x58cm.

ORIGINAL PAINTING £1450 SOLD. Also available as a superb signed print in smaller sizes. Currently in stock £120 with 20″ x 16 inch double mount ready for framing. Free UK postage.

These beautiful Lake District landscapes and pub portraits are collected by map lovers far and wide. Julie Colclough has spent a life-time painting in the Lakes and has exhibited in numerous Lakeland galleries.

Her 2014 ‘Umbria to Cumbria’ exhibition at Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbarn (just around the corner from The Brit) in Elterwater was highly successful.

In the 1990s Julie had the good fortune to create a studio at her brother’s house in Ambleside, where Kurt Schwitters once stored his work and where sadly a previous owner threw many of his experimental collages on the fire after his death.  We look at the old fireplace and cannot believe such work went up the chimney in flames.  The hillside garden with panoramic views has been a huge source of inspiration for Julie’s sketchbooks and paintings.

A range of Julie’s Lake District paintings can be seen at our Chester gallery.
