N05287 LANDSCAPE: FLINT HEAP, ROAD-MAKING c. 1937–41
 
Inscr. ‘T. Hennell’ b.r. and on the back: ‘Flint-heap for road making, New Street Farm, Ridley’.
Watercolour, 12 1/2×19 (32×48).
Presented by an anonymous donor 1941.

Miss Margery Kendon wrote (22 May 1958): ‘New Street Farm was just over the way from Orchard Cottage and this is in fact the field path from Orchard Cottage to Ridley Rectory where Tom was born. Date will be anything between 1937–41. He lived at Orchard Cottage, Ridley, Kent, from 1936–45.’

It appears that N05287 and N05412 were confused in registration and consequently the mode of acquisition was wrongly given in the The British School: A Concise Catalogue, 1953, p.94.
