Winter Night Shoot at Didcot

The original Great Western Railway Engine Shed was built in 1932, using loans provided by the government to relieve unemployment. Many features of this original depot survive to this day, together with some later additions. This night the main shed is half full of smoke and steam with period dressed locomotive crews, cleaners, fitters and a works foreman....

A (very short) Winter’s Tale

So in 2018 we had the ‘Beast from the East’ but no snow. This year we had the ‘Wimper from the West’ and were snowed in for a couple of days. So this was a quick walk to the top of our lane to see how the Olympus worked in the snow and whether my Reynauds would hold up....

Prescott Hill Climb

Every year there are six events held at Prescott, two of them rounds of the British Hillclimb Championship, the VSCC meeting and three ‘club’ events.

Provence

Oh, all those blockbuster A-list towns – Arles, Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Nice – they all live up to their hype and welcome the tourist hordes.
