Mechanical Landscapes – Exploring the Industrial North

Synopsis
This thought-provoking talk is approximately 90 minutes and is a wander through the remnants of the northern industrial landscape. Covering a diverse selection of sites such as the enormous slate quarries of Snowdonia, abandoned textile mills in Lancashire and Yorkshire, a disused underground coal mine, the bizarre landscapes of active steelworks, beached passenger ships, as well as unique views of the inside of derelict cooling towers, this talk is somewhat different from the majority of camera club talks. The images are predominantly black and white, with splashes of colour.

Format
Digital (Pictures to exe on Windows, NOT Mac)

Areas Covered
50 mile / 1 hour radius of Chorley in Lancashire. I will consider talks further afield, but I am in full time employment so I am not in a position to travel long distances during the week.

Cost
Weekday evening talks – flat fee of £50 (includes whatever mileage I incur).
Weekend talks – minimum of £75, dependent on distance, etc.
