Cowgate Graveyard – Wilfrid Wood (1945)

A wonderful watercolour painting of the top end of Cowgate and showing the old graveyard.

The painting dates to 1945 and was produced by urban landscape artist Wilfrid Rene Wood (1888-1976). Wood was born in Cheadle Hulme near Manchester but moved to Barnack in 1937 after which he was responsible for some superb paintings of both Stamford and Peterborough.
