Crab & Winkle Cupboard
The old 'Crab and Winkle' line between Canterbury and Whitstable was the world's
first regular passenger railway line. It has a fascinating history involving Brunel, Telford
and Stephenson. The route is now part of the national cycle network.
The idea for a driftwood cupboard to celebrate this slice of local history came to me while carving a crab into a piece of driftwood. This relief carving became the panel for the left hand door... the rest followed on from that.
Height 29 inches, width 34 inches, depth 18 inches.
