    Some family pictures from Center Parcs in Nottingham

    These are some pictures I took in the Nottingham Center Parcs when we stayed there for a weekend in September. We have been to Center Parcs several times over the last few years, but we mostly go to the Thetford Forest site near the village of Elvden. This time we went to Sherwood again for the first time for about 4 years. There pictures were taken with either my Pentax K5 or the Ricoh GXR fitted with an S10 module.

Transport around the museum is by traditional trams and busses, although...

Although the paths and fields around the river have changed, the general layout and look of the river remains the same as it was when I used to live...

    Rain stops play

    I’ve been a cricket fan for the last 40 year and remember many happy hours watching cricket over the years. Rain has always been a problem, with many games drawn which could have been won or lost. Currently it’s raining at Old Trafford and that looks like it will help England get a draw out of a game they would almost certainly have lost (and may still loose). I know lots of people think that more should be done to...

    A Day at Lords Cricket Ground

    James and I went to Lords cricket ground yesterday to watch the One Day International match between England and New Zealand. It was the first time James had been to Lords and the first time since 1991 that I’d been there so it was a fairly new experience for me also. We took the train from Stevenage at 9:36 and got to Kings Cross in plenty of time for the short underground trip to St Johns Wood which is the...

    Fairlands valley park in Stevenage

    This is a gallery of pictures which share a location in common. They were all taken in Fairlands Valley Park in Stevenage over the course of the last year. Fairlands Valley Pictures Fairlands is the home of the Stevenage Sailing club as well as a recreation area used by many people in Stevenage all year round. There are two ponds, a nature pond connected to the man made sailing lake by a short waterfall. I often walk round the park...
