    Sherwood Tunnel
    A big thank you to Robert Bellingham from Perth in Australia who contacted me about three years ago to tell me about a cave like tunnel at Sherwood that he used to play in as a child over 50 years ago. He last went looking for it with his father back in the mid 1990's when he was over here and managed to locate it amongst the undergrowth in the middle of the woods, still hidden and probably not having been accessed for many years. However, he couldn't get very close due to the heavy bog and
  2. New Web Site and Galleries

    New Web Site and Galleries
    As the web site was becoming a little dated and not exactly optimised for mobile devices, I have been busy rebuilding and slimming it down a little. So here is the finished result, hopefully for your viewing experience, a cleaner and easier to navigate site with fewer images to 'wade through'. There are two new galleries which I thought were worth adding and these are the Roof Top Views and Night Views. These galleries will be continually added to and consist of photos taken whilst
  3. Farewell Christopher!

    Farewell Christopher!
    I would like to say farewell and good luck to Christopher Cassidy who has worked on the Tunbridge Wells Project with me since I invited him to join me back in September 2010. Chris has now moved out of the area and I know that he will be greatly missed for his contribution to the town in the form of his Anke Blog which built up a great following and of course, working on the TWP with me. We have some great memories from working together on the TW Project and over the years have made many

    Halls Bookshop
    We thought we’d better pay a quick visit to Hall’s Bookshop of Chapel Place before the upcoming refurbishments. One of the major changes will be the addition of a new gallery space in the basement, which is currently used for storage. We had to make sure we captured this place for how it looks today so that future generations can see it too.
  5. River Grom Tunnels

    River Grom Tunnels
    We, and many people besides, have been waiting to explore this location for years. Have you ever wondered where the River Grom travels on its way through town, or perhaps where the Chalybeate Spring goes? Step with us then as we travel underneath The Pantiles to have a look. We were very surprised, not only how big the tunnel complex was but how very clean it was down there too. We expected deep thick layers of brown iron deposits but it was just a slight film under the water surface. It was

    Fiat 500 Trekking Review
    If you want to stand out from a crowd there are several ways of doing it. You could dress like a chicken, you could cartwheel naked around the Millennium Clock, or you could drive around in a bright yellow Fiat 500L emblazoned with logos. We chose the latter. We’d been planning our road trip to Germany for a long time but it wasn’t until just three weeks before we were due to set off that we put out a pleading tweet for a set of wheels to get us there. Of course we could’ve taken our own cars

    K&S Hospital Demolition
    Work is well under way on the demolition of the main buildings at the Kent & Sussex Hospital site. Today we were allowed in to photograph the demolition going on. Here's a gallery of images.

    The Wiesbaden Fototage
    Our exhibition is getting closer and closer. It’s just over a week away and still we are finalising plans and getting prints printed. It’s all go go go here at TWP HQ. As we get closer we thought we’d share a few details of the exhibition and what our space will look like. Our space is in a building called “Altes Gericht Wiesbaden” which translates as “Old Courthouse Wiesbaden”. Perfect for us wouldn’t you say? We’ve been given one of the cells below the courthouse as per the photo above.

    The Salomons Galleries
    We’ve just added a few new galleries to the Salomons Album. This time we got to visit some wonderful old workshops and went inside the castle. Can you guess what part of the estate we found this toy pram?
