Green Hill is Dartmoor’s leading dedicated Art Gallery and Shop. Based in Moretonhampstead and one of Devon’s most prominent Art Galleries, Green Hill is attracting the attention of some of the most respected South West Artists. Names such as Peter Randall-Page, Susan Derges, and Peter Stiles have become synonymous with Green Hill over the last four years  having exhibited in the Gallery’s large attractive contemporary space, and supported the Gallery’s developing programme.

The Art Shop offers space for artists to exhibit and sell their work from paintings, prints and ceramics through to textiles, wood and ironwork. Within this imaginatively converted former Primary School there are studio and creative workspaces for hire, mixed use offices, a Youth Centre and Heritage Archive.

The old Canterbury and Whitstable Railway was sometimes also colloquially referred to as the Crab and Winkle Line which opened in 1830 was the cutting edge of technology at the time. The Industrial Revolution was happening and all the famous engineers of the time were connected to it. 

The original photograph I am working from features a steam train – the Invicta – the locomotive which pulled passengers out of Whitstable  on its way to Canterbury in 1952. Today the route is a designated footpath and cycle track.
