Canadian National Vimy Memorial
The Canadian National Vimy Memorial is located on Vimy Ridge in the north eastern corner of France. The memorial is dedicated to the thousands of Canadians who gave their lives in battles of The Great War around Vimy Ridge. Even today much of the land around Vimy is out of bounds […]

The writing is on the wall for this old church
The writing is on the wall for this abandoned and ruined church. Chester is a great place for Christmas shopping by day and atmospheric photography by night.

Watching over The City
I tried my hand at some night photography whilst in London. Where better to start than around Tower Bridge? Here is City Hall keeping it’s beady eye on the City of London.

Westminster Cathedral
When we think of Westminster, we often think also of Westminster Abbey. However, Westminster is also home to Westminster Cathedral. The cathedral is quite well hidden behind modern shops and offices on Victoria Street. The interior of Westminster Cathedral is in stunning Byzantine style. Attached to the cathedral is a […]


Godshill Church
Where better to go on a Sunday than Godshill Church? This church stands on the top of a steep hill but was originally intended to be built on a flat, easy accessed area at the bottom of the hill. Legend says that construction on the intended site had begun, with […]

Caernarfon Castle
The Royal Town of Caernarfon is home to this wonderful castle. Built by Edward the 1st, Caernarfon was an important link in his ring of iron. The castle is an UNESCO listed World Heritage Site. The castle is open daily throughout the year, closing only for a handful of days […]

The River Severn lazily flows through Shrewsbury
Shrewsbury might not be the first place you think of to visit. Reconsider though – it’s perfect for an autumnal or wintery weekend shopping day out. Just a nice distance from the West Midlands, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and much of North Wales. The centre of Shrewsbury has over 600 listed […]


Pink on Wight
I do like a retro style photograph. Of course, retro style does work better with vintage subjects. The Isle of Wight is a great source of retro style street scenes and cottages.

Lambeth Palace
Lambeth Palace is the official London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Palace is almost opposite another Palace – the Palace of Westminster which you probably know better as the Houses of Parliament. The Palace is also home to the Community of St. Anselm which is an Anglican religious […]

The Flintshire Bridge to Nowhere
  The Flintshire Bridge is nicknamed by the locals as “The Bridge to Nowhere”. I cross the bridge regularly which means I can understand why the locals chose that nickname. It’s usually a quiet road. The dual carriageway bridge does seem to be a little bit of over-kill for the […]

Chester Cobbles
Whilst walking around the ancient City walls of Chester, I stumbled on this attractive cobbled street scene. The Walls of Chester are a great place to find many photo locations. There’s a good mix of ancient, medieval, old and modern to be seen. Of particular note is the Eastgate Clock […]
