The Wold Cottage Meteorite Monument by Tom Hughes – Limited Edition Prints


A fantastic study by Tom Hughes of this historic monument marking the exact fall spot location of the Wold Cottage meteorite. The Wold Cottage meteorite fell on 13th December 1795 in the Yorkshire village of Wold Newton and was witnessed to fall by a ploughman who was only a few yards away. You can read more about the Wold Cottage Meteorite and the circumstances of its fall in the following articles in my Meteorite Adventures section: A Meteorite home coming, A meteorite homecoming – media and links, Wold Cottage – June 2011 visit and Wold Cottage – June 2012 visit

These are limited edition prints signed and numbered by Tom from an edition of 30. They are printed on acid free 300gsm 100% cotton rag paper. The original is a classically styled scientific illustration in Graphite. The tonal range extends from 9H to 2B – creating a distinctly soft, delicate image with subtle fine details.

Prints are available mounted (on acid free card mount board in off white colour and supplied in archival cellophane sleeve) or un mounted. Un mounted prints are 11 3/4 by 16 1/2 inches and when mounted they are 16 by 20 inches (Including mount).

Note – Mounted prints can only be posted to the UK, all orders from outside the UK will be un mounted only to avoid any damage in transit
