I was delighted to be asked recently if I would be interested to show a selection of my 'On Bredon Hill - 2016' photographs at the Ashton under Hill Open Gardens 40th Anniversary Event on the weekend of the 10th and 11th June this year. I enthusiastically accepted. Ashton under Hill lies at the foot of Bredon Hill on its eastern edge. I started out on several of my hikes throughout 2016 from the village.
four, or thereabouts, of my prints will be exhibited in St Barbara's
Church throughout the weekend. Please see the Ashton under Hill Open
Gardens website for more information: www.ashtonopengardens.co.uk. I aim to be in attendance throughout the official opening hours of the event from 1pm to 6pm each day.

Whilst staying in Northumberland I came across an almost derelict barn that, subsequently, I found out was used as a hangar for a local landowner's light aircraft. It now houses two abandoned cars - a Ford Capri Ghia and a Reliant three-wheeler. I spent an enjoyable couple of hours taking these photographs - a little different from my more usual landscapes. Additionally there were several animal skulls adorning the walls. I understand that this was used as a film location last summer.
