I returned to Spurn last week to collect the two large Spurn Cloths from the lighthouse. I was actually a bit nervous about going back: this really was the end of my official time here. Out on the dunes autumn is evident.
Inside the lighthouse Spurn Cloth #2 was beautifully lit in the autumn sunshine.
and up in the lamp room Cloth #1 still looked quite at home. I wonder how the colours have faded with almost a month in direct sunlight. There must have been some change; a mellowing. But the strong prints look much the same. Any change that there has been is just part of the life of these pieces.
I took the cloths down, packed them away and left the lighthouse as I'd found it 6 months ago.
