As Johnny Thornton recounts, "Nicky Howarth Dwek and I went to Wiltshire as a friend had a cottage on The Easton Grey House Estate owned by Peter Saunders. We wandered down by the Avon River that flows through the estate and found this deserted mill, within which was a room, the walls of which where covered in peeling paint, the only thing inside was an old rickety chair. I had taken with me a pair of mannequin's hands, a pair of stockings and a bust of Beethoven - the sort of things that one typically takes on a bucolic walk, so the image really did happen down by the old millstream."
