About the Artist

Barry Freeman was born in Northampton in 1937. Following ten years in the Royal Navy and several years in the electronics and aviation industry, he took up teaching, drawing and painting before early retirement gave him the opportunity to become a professional artist. An avid railway enthusiast since childhood, his combined love of art and railways is reflected in the detailed paintings in which he now specialises. In 1995, Barry was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and is a former deputy president of the Guild of Railway Artists.

On a warm July day in 1957, the down ‘Bournemouth Belle’, hauled by ‘Merchant Navy’ pacific No. 35012 ‘United States Lines’, sweeps round the curve through Brockenhurst Station. In the adjacent sidings, class H15 4-6-0 No. 30476, on a running-in turn from Eastleigh, marshals a freight train before departing for Bournemouth via the Ringwood line. A push and pull train from Bournemouth to Brockenhurst, propelled by M7 0-4-4Tank No. 30029, approaches its destination and the Lymington branch train can just be seen in platform 4.

The 636 piece jigsaw puzzle is the same width as a standard 1,000 piece but not as tall.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.

We’ve made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap, reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.

Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

High quality 636 piece jigsaw puzzle.
Each puzzle measures 32x69cm when complete.
Made from thick, durable board that is 100% recycled.
