Farmhouse near water's edge

Believed to be 'Swan Nest House', a farmhouse behind what is now known as Willy Lott's House, part of the Valley Farm estate: a house near the water's edge: the house enclosed by trees, a boat near the bank of the river near the foreground, reeds and wooded banks further on.


Watercolour, with pen and grey ink, and scratching out.

Little is known of 'Swan Nest House', but there are remains of a moat which circle this space creating an island known as Swan Nest.

Donated by Isabel Constable 1888, the artists daughter.
