The weekend will begin Friday afternoon and the options are for 2 or 3 nights B & B plus evening meal.

You must book your own rooms direct with the hotel, telephone number 01305 821361, and advise Martin Howse that you have booked in order to know how many people are attending.


Friday evening, for those who arrive Friday, please bring a few prints to share with the other attendees.

We will arrange a walk on the Saturday, but attendees can make their own arrangements for the day if they wish.

It is now confirmed that the speaker for Saturday evening will be landscape photographer Paul Sanders, former picture editor of The Times and contributer to Photography Monthly http://www.paulsanders.biz. There will be a nominal charge for this, and Paul will also help to lead a walk on Saturday guiding us to the best spots for image making.


For anybody staying Sunday evening, or who leave later during the day on Sunday, we will arrange a further field trip to a nearby area for photography.
