Highnam Court

Had a cracking day out with my chums from the Royal Society to Highnam Court I’ve uploaded a few random shots from the house which you’ll see in this set on Flickr. Highlight of the day for me was getting access to Highnam Church where I managed to sneak in a few minutes before the […]

Scratch N Skate..

Nice little random afternoon down at the skate park in Cam this afternoon. For the past couple of years they’ve been organising a little music/skate/bmx event called ‘Scratch N Skate’.
