  • Peter Ball - 'Southwell Revisited' Sculpture exhibition - Nottinghamshire
    on Sep 2, 2016
    I was familiar with the striking sculptures by this very talented artist as his 'Christus Rex' has been suspended above the chancel entrance since 1987, and   has always struck me as very fine, so I was keen to see more of his work.Peter Eugene...
  • Sculpture at Doddington Hall part 2 - Lincolnshire
    on Aug 22, 2016
    I always knew I would have to go back to Doddington Hall - it just wasn't possible to admire 373 sculptures in one visit.  Again I was overwhelmed by the amount of sheer planing and work that must have gone into this exhibition, for every piece...

  • Sculpture at Doddington Hall - Lincolnshire
    on Aug 5, 2016

  • E.Midlands Flower Show - Newstead Abbey - Nottinghamshire
    on Jun 26, 2016
    This was the first time this Show had been held at this venue, and what a lovely setting it proved to be.  Even the peacocks were enjoying the day by shrieking their heads off, to the amusement of the crowds! My first stop was to listen to...
  • Pisani Chapel - near Cromford - Derbyshire
    on Jun 20, 2016
    I'd never heard of this place until I saw a small piece in the 'Celebrating Cromford Village Festival 2016' programme.  I didn't know where it was or what it was all about but the ad. said 'The Chapel is only open to the public once a year' - no...
  • The Echium Garden - Edwinstowe - Nottinghamshire
    on May 19, 2016
    I'd seen these wonderful plants in London, but never dreamt they would grow in the chilly north Midlands.  Thern I discovered that the National Plant Collection of Echiums is actually only a few miles from my home, at Edwinstowe, right on the ed...
