Note: The artist moved to Saffron Walden in 1970 and made a lot artworks depicting local planes of interest. The famous Audley End House was a short walk from where he lived. It is a largely early 17th-century country house. It was once a prodigy house, a palace in all but name and renowned as one of the finest Jacobean buildings in England. This linocut was a complex task to complete with the regimented architecture of the building and complex intermix of colours. It ranks amongst Bawden’s finest prints.,
