About Me

As a follower of the snooker circuit, while others are holidaying in Benidorm, Greece, Florida or Italy, I find myself sampling the delights of Preston, Sunderland, Telford and Sheffield.

I have a weakness for small parish churches and anything quirky, bleak or secluded.

I am fortunate to have had the following images shortlisted for Geographs of the Week:
