Artist's description:

The brewing history of Royston town goes back centuries. At one point this small town had 24 pubs and 3 breweries! Despite the population being in the low hundreds, Royston has always been a commuter's town as it sits on the crossroads of the old road from London to Scotland, and the old Icknield Way road which stretched far to the east and west. With travellers constantly flowing through the town (including King James!), the pubs doubled as inns and the ale quenched travellers' thirst. "Ye Old Royston Town" is a painting that celebrates this brewing, travelling history.

This painting is the fourth in the Royston Cave Art series. These paintings are heavily textured to appear like carvings on the chalky cave walls of the Royston Cave. The carvings on each piece, tell the story. This technique was originally developed during the creation of a 5 canvas commission for J D Wetherspoon, Royston. That piece was called The Manor House Mural, and it can be viewed in the pub or at
