Autumn Afternoons

A cold afternoon walk along the cliffs at Weybourne. Golden hours, the cawing of birds, the crashing of waves.

The Abandoned Boozers of Norwich

Some very early (re-edited) images from EastScapes. The declining pub industry seemed to represent the present-day UK in a nutshell: decay, shifting community, shifting leisure patterns. So much history has been carved out on the floorboards of British inns: the bargain booze aisles of harshly-lit supermarkets don't feel quite the same.

Dunwich Horrors: Images from the Suffolk Coast

Just spent a few days away in Dunwich, Suffolk. The village's incredible history is no secret - a major East Anglian port, Anglo-Saxon capital, comparable to London in size, almost completely lost to the sea over the centuries. From a population of thousands, a hundred or so people live there today. It is hidden behind marshes, forests, heathland.

For the horror aficionado, Dunwich also holds other appeals. One of the most famous of the fictional New England towns in the writings of HP Lovecraft takes its name from this lost city: the coastal doom and isolation are particularly appropriate for Lovecraft's work. Another earlier twentieth century author, the British scholar MR James, set many of his influential ghost stories along this stretch of the Suffolk coast, visited Dunwich numerous times, and clearly used aspects of the village for his own fictional locales. Due in no small way to the enormous influence of these two authors in particular, film, television, writing, and even role-playing games have turned to lonely Dunwich for further inspiration over the years, and in turn add to the village's sense of hidden, lurking magick.

The Derelict East: Changing Rooms, Lowestoft

Its exterior covered in graffiti'd images of crows, this dingy hole was once a changing room facility for either the neighbouring Lowestoft Cricket Club ground or a now-gone caravan site - perhaps both.

This building is only a few minutes walk from Ness Point - the most easterly point in the UK - so this may well be the nation's most easterly derelict site.
