In January 2017 Carolyn Black began to work on a series of large-scale, panoramic, charcoal drawings of the Severn, several of which were exhibited and sold. There were special sales, too, such as the one for a fundraiser for St. Peters Bells Appeal in Newnham, which raised £1500 towards the bell restoration. While she worked in her studio on the drawings, she also wrote – fact-gathering and collating memoirs about her long relationship with the Severn. Together, these became Severnside.
