Went to the David Hall in October to see Rob Heron & the Tea Pad Orchestra. A really tight performance. I’ve not known them to be otherwise of course. This is the first time I’ve seen them performing old style around a single microphone. It was nice chatting to them between sets and after the encores. It helps of course when you’re accompanied by an aunt and cousin of one of the band.
The Walled Gardens of Cannington lie within the grounds of a medieval priory. The gardens had undergone extensive redevelopment when officially opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward. The Gardens, located near Bridgwater, provide a superb facility for students at Bridgwater College. As you walk around look out for the ‘hot’ Herbaceous Border; the Blue Garden; the Sub-Tropical Walk; and a Victorian style fernery.
Originally created to drain the Somerset Levels it never really worked. Luckily as part of the wetlands of the Somerset Levels it still has scenic and wildlife value. Finding myself here for the fist time in years, having moved away. I took the opportunity to capture the scene. Restoration and improvement for wildlife continues. The scope has increased in recent years. Improving the area for wildlife and the visitors. A unique place, come and see if you’re in the area.
