Horace Percival Hart
2nd son of Thomas Hart FSA Taught to paint and draw by his father, and exhibited with him all over England. 1889 became a teacher of painting and drawing in Helston, Cornwall. November 1990, he left Cornwall to take up a teaching post in Newport Monmouthshire, Wales. 1992 he had a Selling Exhibition at the Grand Hotel Manchester with 50 paintings on display.
Percy was included in several Exhibitions before his untimely death in 1996, I am sure that if he had lived longer he would have achieved much more note.
is a mountain in Bremanger Municipality in Vestland county, Norway. The mountain sits on the eastern end of the island of Bremangerlandet, along the Frøysjøen strait, in the Nordfjord region of Norway. At 860 metres (2,820 ft), it is the highest sea cliff in Europe (see illustration left), and has for a long time been used as a landmark for naval navigation. It is a 4-hour hike to the summit from Berleneset (across the small fjord from the village of Berle).
The horizontal distance from the summit to the sea is approximately 500 metres (1,600 ft). Approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the west of the cliffside is the highest point on the island Bremangerlandet, called Svartevassegga which has an elevation of 889 metres (2,917 ft). The rock in Hornelen consists of sandstone of Devonian age, and it constitutes an important part of the geology of Norway.
The region is located in the northern part of Vestland county in Western Norway. It centers on the Nordfjorden and it comprises the municipalities of Selje, Vågsøy, Bremanger, Eid, Gloppen, Hornindal, and Stryn. The Nordfjord region is a area of about 4,295 square kilometres (1,658 sq mi) population of 32,464.
The fjord is the sixth longest in Norway stretching 106 kilometres (66 mi) from the island of Husevågøy at the mouth to the village of Loen at the other end. The region encompasses the rough coastline of the Stadlandet peninsula to the Jostedalsbreen, Europe’s largest mainland glacier. The region also includes the lake Hornindalsvatnet, Europe’s deepest lake at 514 metres (1,686 ft) below sea level. The glacier Briksdalsbreen is particularly scenic. The Stryn area provides year-round alpine skiing, and there are numerous old fishing communities along the fjord going back to pre-Viking times.
