Picture Gallery 3: The first series of images on this page were taken at Amberley Chalk Pits Industrial Museum in West Sussex. I spent a good day here in the 1980’s, I really must get back there to see whats going on. It is a very good day out.

Picture Gallery 3.1 – The working blacksmith at Amberley Museum, always so difficult to photograph. There are several in Cornwall I mean to get to go and see.
Picture Gallery 3.2 – When working in Black and White always look for the detailed unusual image. This old cart in a stable was very pleasing to the eye.
Picture Gallery 3.3 – Another good image full of detail and interest.
Picture Gallery 3.4 – With old locomotives on the site there are plenty of photographic images to be found.
Picture Gallery 3.5 – Old machinery, overgrown and forgotten, hidden in bushes it makes an interesting subject.
Picture Gallery 3.6 – A good image of a set of points at Amberley Chalk Pits museum.
Picture Gallery 3.7 – One of the old Quarry Locomotives at Amberley.
The next set of images were taken at Spurn Head which is located at the entrance to the Humber Estury. The area was heavily fortified during World War Two and there are extensive remains to be seen along the coastline. Huge Bunkers and Pill boxes lay scattered around, along with the tipped over mount of a naval gun.
Spurn Head Image 1 – This is a collapsed naval gun mounting at Spurn Head. This complex was in use until the 1950’s. The gun here was a 4.7″ which had replaced a 9.2″ which was installed in 1916.
Spurn Head Image 2 – A final image of the gun mounting ring, undermined by the sea the concrete was eroded and the rest has collapsed, but it was still very impressive to see.
Spurn Head Image 3 – A view of the whole complex at Spurn Head, the sea has all but destroyed some of the Pill Boxes.
Spurn Head Image 4 – This whole beach was covered in wire during the war. Above all this was thought to be a very important area to defend.
Spurn Head Image 5 – The timbering out to sea are some of remains of the World War Two defences.
Spurn Head Image 6 – More decaying timber, the textures and detail make a pleasing image. This is the joy of Black and White, the contract and grain on the film really add to the effect.
Spurn Head Image 7 – This is the final taken at of Spurn Head.Walking along the beach there were some good detailed images to be taken.This is one of the better ones on this last gallery page.
