Chantry Chapel

An unusual view of the Chantry Chapel, taken from the car park next to it. The chapel is the oldest building in Buckingham. Sarah posted very nice pictures of the chapel in September 2008.

Mitre Cottage

This cottage is close to the old railway bridge on the corner of Hunter Road and Mitre Road.
Mitre Cottage
The railway was dismantled in 1967 but the viaducts are still in place and are now part of Buckingham's Railway Walk.

All over town trees, shrubs, flowers are blooming in a riot of colours. The forsythia seems even brighter right now since we've had several days of blue skies.

On the doorstep...

A perfectly spring like scene... cat (even if it is a stone one) warming itself in the morning sun and the cheerful blooms of pansies and tulips.

Enjoying Buckingham's Street Market

Buckingham Town Council is promoting the traditional street and flea market in town with events and activities outside the Old Gaol on Saturday mornings throughout April and June.
It's great to soak up the atmosphere on a stunning spring day: Local musicians Luke Ford and the Cantells and many others were entertaining the crowds and encouraged children to join in with percussion. During the last song of the day spectators were treated to a special performance dance by our local postman. You can see more pictures here...

Looking up Fleece Yard.

One of the the things that I'm loving about having another photo contributer to this blog is seeing the different way they see and photoraph things.

Here's some past photos of Fleece Yard.

the old cinema: update

Old Vauxhall Garage Building

The original post is here.

as you can see nothing much has changed! This building, originally built in the 1930's has been both a Vauxhall Garage and a Cinema... if Sainsbury has its way in the future it may be demolished and in it's place a convenience store and flats will be built.

Personally... don't think we need the convenience store and I much rather see the building restored if it's still structurally sound.

Spring; it feels like it's officially here!

The latter part of last week was glorious. It was the weather we wished we had over the Easter weekend... but never mind... beggars and choosers and all that!

Giovanni's and Ginny Gray's

Hello and thank you for all the kind thoughts and words about me "firing up" the daily photo blog! As often happens I assumed that by changing my employer I would in turn be able to change how I managed my time outside of work. Turns out I was very very wrong!

But hey ho... life goes on and the words of encouragement have motivated me to get back out there and shoot :)

To help me with this project, and to ensure that it continues on, is my friend Nico, a fellow Buckingham resident and a fantastic photographer.
