    Cartmel Valley

    • Cartmel is a small village situated in the south Lake District. Recently the village has established its reputation for the 2 Michelin-Star restaurant L'Enclume and the Cartmel Racecourse. However, it has a long history way back to medieval times. In the midst of this tiny village stands a grand chapel called Cartmel Priory founded in 1190 as a monastery by William Marshal who was loyal to King John when Magna Carta was sealed. This priory witnessed Dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII yet survived. In 2015 we celebrated the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta at this village and this priory attracted many visitors. I produced this small work in homage to its history. 

      南湖水地方の一小村カートメル。近年、ミシュラン2つ星レストラン ”L'Enclume” やカートメル競馬場ですっかり人気スポットに様変わりしましたが、その歴史は古く中世にまで遡ります。それを雄弁に物語るのが、村の中心にそびえるカートメル大聖堂。1190年、ジョン王の側近として大憲章調印に尽力したウィリアム・マーシャルにより、修道院としての礎が築かれました。ヘンリー8世治下の修道院崩壊を目の当たりにしたにもかかわらず崩壊を免れ、当時の佇まいを残しています。2015年には大憲章調印800周年を記念して盛大な行事が催され、カートメル大聖堂は多くの来訪者を魅了しました。その歴史深い大聖堂へのオマージュとして、この小品を完成させた次第です。
