Point 110 Old Military Cemetery

Point 110 Old Military Cemetery

This painting is the view across chalk downland from the back of the Point 110 Old Cemetery. The landscape here reminds me of the Berkshire Downs. Itís a dramatic sweep of countryside.

On the old trench maps, Point 110 is the name of the contour line marking the gradations in land height. The original cemetery was started by the French in 1915 after they suffered heavy casualties.
