Sketch at Eling Creek

Another trip to the coast - Eling Creek is situated at the head of Southampton Water near Totton. Let's meet here for some sketching of the boats in the harbour, views across to Southampton Docks, Eling Tidal Mill (entrance fee), the Totton & Eling Heritage Centre, the Toll Bridge or the nearby Eling Church. It will be our usual format, meet - sketch/draw/paint for a couple of hours - regroup to share what we've done (for those happy to do so!) & for refreshments where possible.

I think there may be a few benches near the harbour, but it might be an idea to bring something to sit on unless you're OK standing/sitting on the ground.

Meet by the entrance to Eling Tide Mill & Gift shop at 1030. click here for a view of where to meet. Depending on which way you come from there is a toll bridge with a £1 charge to cross it by car! There is a free car park on the south side of the river, then walk across the tollbridge (about a 2 minute walk), or there are a few spaces to park on the north side of the river in front of the of the Anchor Inn pub and along the front. Eling Tide Mill have some useful directions here on their website.

    The day was very hot and everyone was looking for shady spots to sit under in order to sketch without getting burned by the sun. It was great to meet up with familiar faces and chat and also to welcome and share this time with newcomers to the group.
