Sherborne Abbey

We visited Sherborne Abbey almost a year ago, and enjoyed it so much that we went back again this year.

Tintern

At the weekend I went for a walk around the Tintern area with a friend. We walked about eight miles, starting from Tintern Abbey and heading up to the Devil’s Pulpit which overlooks it.

I’ve only finished one of the two films, which is exclusively […]

The Roman Baths

For Hannah’s birthday we visited Bath, and spent a large part of the day at the Roman Baths. I took my “new” Zorki-4 Soviet rangefinder to try it out. Here’s the birthday girl herself. This Roman chap stands in the shadow of the Abbey. And a few interior shots of the baths, to try and […]
