  1. Northumberland in Photographs by Nathan Atkinson

    After I had completed my first book, “County Durham in Photographs”, I was given the opportunity of working on a similar book for Northumberland. Neighbouring County Durham, Tyne and Wear and Scotland, it is a county rich in history and legend. Clearly the book would have to include famous landmarks such as Sycamore Gap, Holy Island, Bamburgh and Hadrian’s Wall...

  2. The Old Ways of Cumbria by Beth & Steve Pipe

    A book for nosey hikers Surely every hiker, at some point or another, has pondered about the path they’re treading. Who walked here before? Why is the path here? What’s that building for? It can’t just be me who is a fully paid up member of the nosey hikers club. Over the years we’ve walked thousands of miles and most...

  3. Kent in Photographs by Bryan Phillips

    We have the power. Richborough in Kent is well-known for a number of reasons. One of these is its link to history and the Roman invasion. A large site of a Roman fort was discovered many years ago and it shows the evidence of underfloor heating along with structures that would have made a significant impact on anyone seeing the...

  4. 50 Gems of Cheshire by Mike Appleton

    50 Gems in Cheshire is my third contribution to Amberley’s ‘Gems’ series and you’d think I’d have got the hang of it by now. 50 Gems of the Yorkshire Dales was a jewel filled quest in a national park I knew like the back of my hand while although 50 Gems of Derbyshire took me to a different part of...

  5. A149 Landmarks by Edward Couzens-Lake

    An Alternative Road Trip The road trip. Romance on the road. You, your car, the open road. A discovery waiting to happen, revelations that lie over the crest of the next hill. Jack Kerouac wrote of his own road trip as he travelled across the United States from east to west by bus, car and, when the latter two options...

  6. Cumbria in Photographs by Steve Pipe

    Cumbria through the seasons Each year Cumbria sees in excess of 15 million visitors and many of them come between Easter and October, which is a shame as Cumbria is a county of year round beauty. This ever changing beauty is something I tried to show in my Cumbria in Photographs book; capturing the colours and the activities is less...

  7. Lancashire in Photographs by Jon Sparks

    It’s often said that modern cameras have made photography easier. I can’t deny that the odds of consistently getting an image that’s in focus and correctly exposed are very much better than they were when I began my own photographic journey, before ‘digital imaging’ was even thought of. But ‘in focus and correctly exposed’ is not enough; it is not...

  8. Defining a Gem in the Yorkshire Dales by Mike Appleton

    “Defining a ‘gem’ is as much down to personal choice, affiliation and affection as it is to conform to a set checklist of what beauty or a landmark should be.” That's the opening line from my new book 50 Gems of the Yorkshire Dales published by Amberley. The tome seeks to discover some of the best places the area has...
