When I saw it recently Bri it wasn't hanging like that but I'll pass on this one and let someone else have a guess.       ;D

It was behind a little curtain at Lady Lever's art gallery last time I saw it

That is its normal home, but a few years back it came on loan to Bangor Art Gallery, so I went to see it. I was surprised how small it was !
My OH won't have that one in the house, but I have another of Sydney Curnow Vospers paintings. Market Day in Old Wales.
Mad, Bad and Dangerous to know.

Well done, Jack.

Many forum members may be interested in reading this (providing it is eventually the right way up) 😂

A lovely deciduous wood in a steep valley with a river flowing through it, but where is it?

Looking at this photo you could be reminded of the Horseshoe Falls or even the USSR perhaps

No idea where you are, but your clue is suggesting "steppes"  which led me to the Roman steps, but that walk looks a bit steep,
so am I getting warm.

You're thinking well Steve but the steps are not Roman.      You might be getting warmer but the wood is hotter!

Another photo should get you the answer

If this is right, you are "out of area" in the opposite direction of your usual walks...........here goes.

NANT MILL WOOD, WREXHAM (WRECSAM)

Just found some photos of the tree carvings   ?

Well done Steve, you are spot on again and it wasn't an easy one either.       We did a walk yesterday from Nant Mill  Coedpoeth and went on the Clywedog Trail covering Minerva to Bersham
Just to recap on the clues
The carving is of King Offa and his dyke goes through the wood
The Russian Steps is another name for the weir
Coedpoeth  ( Hot Wood )

Thank you, it was the last photo, even then I was not sure, have a look at the link, some weird and wonderful views, of the waterfall.
