Heart of Gold

Introduction
This painting was issued in 2009 when the value of gold was soaring due to the global recession. Car boot sales were scoured for old jewellery and “cash4gold” web sites were advertised on television. In the same year Chris and Marilyn visited Pateley Bridge to take these photos. The town is famous for its “Oldest Sweet Shop in England” dated 1827, as endorsed by The Guinness Book of Records.

Hazle Ceramics
Heart of Gold
Limited Painting of 50
with added 22 carat gold
on Pateley Bridge 2
Version 2 of the model has a stucco (plaster) wall, a plainer shop front and right door. The bricks down the right wall are called quoins.

 Hazle has copied the first floor bay window sitting on the frontage of this gift shop on both Pateley models, but PB 1 has more of the front’s decoration.

 At the foot of the hill, this bridge over the River Nidd gives this small, market town in the Yorkshire Dales its name. Pateley is said to mean “forest clearing of the paths” in Old English.

 Hazle adapted the rounded window in the first house for her model. The Oldest Sweet Shop is in one of the lowest buildings seen higher up.

 This is one of Pateley’s independent shops and the only jewellers’ store here.
