Tide Mills is a derelict village in East Sussex, between Newhaven and Seaford, on Seaford bay (above). There was a small archaeology group excavating on the day I visited and there is also the remains of a WW1 Sea Plane base.
The “Station Masters House”.
What I assume is a Helicopter landing pad on the site of the old Seaplane base.
The pier to east of the entrance to the port of Newhaven.
There is a lot of birdlife in the scrub around the villages remains and this female Serin was flying up and down amongst it long enough for me to change lens.
Hurrying towards City Thameslink to catch a train home I walked around St Paul’s cathedral grounds, attempting to capture some non-touristy images.
There is a statue recently placed on the steps to St Paul’s, Mark Wallinger’s ‘Ecce Homo’, which is fantastically lifelike. At first I thought it was a “living statue” and I even saw some tourists putting there arms around it for pictures!
This one would have benefited from being a bit more horizontal, I seemed to have developed a 20 degree list, but the principle was good.
The club has invited members to submit images for the web site showcase pages and as I happened to be in the City (Westminster, central London) and lacked images to enter in the “people” or “urban” categories so I took my camera.
Above the town of Alfriston, Sussex, on the South Downs is the Church of the Good Shepherd. I attempted an early morning visit, parked in a lay-by on the Lullington Road and hiked up the South Downs Way in a chill breeze.
The church stands on a small rise in a small churchyard with few graves.
Leaving the grounds of the church I wandered up along the South Downs way again, the wind was keeping the clouds moving quite quickly and so the colour of the immature crops was changing constantly.
I had parked near one of the streams that forms the drainage system for the farmland in the flood plain.
