Nicholas Barnham lived and worked in Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast where the harbours, beaches and marshes of the coastal villages provided him with a constant source of inspiration. This work is from a series of prints that until recently adorned the walls of a private home in Blakeney.

The Watch House of the title is the small building shown in the distance beyond the creek. In the 18th century it was used as a lookout for fishermen and sailors in distress.
