“Not all those who wander are lost.” ... Whilst exploring this now derelict Windlestone Manor located in County Durham England, my friend who accompanied me suggested posing for a shot. The house was the birthplace in 1897 of Anthony Eden, the younger son of the sixth baronet; Eden entered parliament as a Conservative Party Member of Parliament in 1923, later serving as a cabinet minister before serving as Prime Minister from 1955 to 1957. The house and estate were used as a prisoner of war camp during World War II, then later as a school before closing its doors in 2006.

Following my love of art and photography after bringing up my four children I went back to school, then after a year taking a higher education course in Art & Design I then attended Batley School of Art and completed a 3 year BA Hons Photography degree gaining a fist class honours degree in 2014. My love of abandoned places and forgotten spaces drives my passion
