Three Quartets

This sequence was photographed in the early 1980s, on visits to three of the four places that gave T S Eliot the titles for the sections of his last great work Four Quartets.

Burnt Norton is a manor house on the edge of the Cotswolds, East Coker a village in Somerset (Eliot is buried in the church) and Little Gidding a small community near Huntingdon. (The other quartet ‘The Dry Salvages’ is named for a group of rocks off Cape Ann, Massachusetts – rather too far to travel, alas.)
