949 – Cafe Rouge in Bury

On Wednesday I made a quick visit to Bury St. Edmunds to my favourite shop (Denny Bros – an art supply shop of course) and had a few moments to sketch this. After doing this drawing I found out that the red building is a 19th century Grade 1 listed building designed by Ipswich architect John Sherwell Corder. At the lower level is a terracotta frieze with dragons, serpents and the three crowns of St. Edmund….something I never would have known if I hadn’t sketched this.
