We visited Hannah Blackmore's fine exhibition of landscape painting. She was there to talk about her paintings and we got cards and a print.

The exhibition has closed but look her up at hannahblackmore.com

So many interesting shops in this precinct and little alleyways. If you looking for a souvenir or a gift this is the perfect spot. It is expensive but there are also a lot of bargains. Well worth a visit. Quaint.
