Sam Willis - Winterval

As some of you may be aware a couple of my Magic Lantern project images have been used as artwork on the new Sam Willis LP "Winterval" released on Half Machine Records.
It's a fantastic album; atmospheric, moody, and has a real sense of time and place about it, I can't recommend it highly enough.

You can read more about it here and listen to a track below:

Magic Lantern Project - Batch #7

It's that time we have the latest batch in the Magic Lantern Project.

This batch continues much in the same theme as the last one, more exploits in climbing with the B.R.C. bunch out and about in the Peak District. There's another episode in the story of Matt Stubb's Dream and a rather nice one of the Eton Quadrangle...

As usual if you can provide any info whatsoever about any of the pictures, places or people in this project then please get in touch...

Briars Frome

Where did it go? The Village of "Briars Frome" disappeared from maps in 1963 and no-one alive today seems to have any memory of it....but it was there!
