Expectation had been great all day.  Then, on a murky, thundery afternoon, it finally appeared. John Constable’s ‘Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows’ (1831), on loan from the Tate, London.  All 1.52 m x 1.9 m of it. The only question was…would it fit through the door?  Of course it would.  It is an old friend who has been here before….
