BBC One – Countryfile

April 4, 2019

We have been very lucky and met this lovely fella a few weeks ago, when BBC Countryfile came to spend a day with us.

This coming Sunday  you’ll be able to see our time together on BBC ONE 7th April at 7pm.

The programme marks the 70th anniversary of the creation of the National Parks.

We are delighted to have small part on the show, where we will be spinning an overlay glass plate and taking John through the process and the landscape that inspires our work.

 

Captain Cook and a ‘loving’ Icon

August 27, 2009

This is a wonderful typo taken from the Darlington & Stockton Times.

We have been nominated by the National Parks as a living icon, as part of a quest to find people, living and dead, who most represent the culture, heritage and landscape of the National Parks, as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the passing of the Countryside Act.

We have been nominated alongside Captain Cook and mentioned in some fine company…weather we are considered a living or loving icon, we are just a bit honoured and best pleased.
