Belper Food (and Drink) for Thought…

Posted on July 8, 2019 by Admin under Uncategorized

The Belper Food & Drink Festival is an event to make any local proud, especially considering that at the first festival in 2007, there were 40 stalls and 3,000 visitors. It peaked in 2013 with 105 stalls and an estimated 10,000 visitors. I enjoyed the event but I do wonder if complacency has set in. […]

Belper Food Fest 2015

Posted on July 13, 2015 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

I spent the whole of Sunday shooting the 9th Belper Food, Real Ale & Craft Festival. My pride in Belper soars with each passing year and, in spite of a cloudy day, there was still a substantial turnout and afternoon arrivals were eventually greeted by sunshine. There were the usual 100 plus stalls, a remarkable […]

‘The Ultimate Art Gallery Above’

Posted on July 7, 2015 by Admin under The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer, Uncategorized

As I build up to my Crowdfunding appeal for my book of the Derwent Valley Mills, here’s one of my favourite images – showing Long Row Belper – which will definitely go in the book. I like the fact that it’s so timeless, having cropped at the bottom to hide the parked cars, and if […]

Transition Belper Mosaic

Posted on June 10, 2015 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

Today Transition Belper had the official launch of its eye-catching mosaic on Belper Railway Station. The work done by Transition volunteers in improving the railway station is really commendable. Another reason to be proud of Belper. Talking of mosaics, I did a bit of piecing together, photographically speaking. I had the idea of taking a […]

Belper Goes Green 2015

Posted on May 31, 2015 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

Transition Belper, a group addressing the issues of ‘peak oil and climate change’ in the town and surrounding area, held a very successful eco fest this weekend entitled Belper Goes Green. Saturday was a glorious blue sky day and big crowds gathered, as you’ll see from my photo gallery.  Many of these images will be going in my […]

Reminiscence Vintage

Posted on May 25, 2015 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

Spent a lovely afternoon on Sunday inside No 28 in Belper where Reminiscence Vintage served tea and cakes with live music – all part of the Belper Arts Festival Open Houses weekend. Mary and Sue run this delightful business. As their website states, they ‘share a passion for vintage loveliness in all its forms.’. If […]

Belper Passion

Posted on April 21, 2014 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

I attended and photographed my first ever Passion last Good Friday in my home town of Belper, one of only around two dozen places in the UK to stage the Passion Play. It was only the second time The Passion had been performed in Belper and the first time it included a Walk of Witness, with […]

Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site – Book Commission

Posted on February 23, 2014 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

I have another book in the making… as the official photographer for the Arkwright Society, I have been commissioned to produce a book of photos of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.  Hurrah.  They want a calendar, too. I already have a large bank of photos of the area, having produced local calendars and […]
