Dunstable Downs – Kite Festival

Off to Dunstable, it is always windy at the Downs. There is also always people flying kites, but today was the official weekend of the Kite Festival. So had to go along with the long lens and capture what I could. Here’s a selection of photos from the event.

 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


West Wycombe St Lawrence’s Church

Last part of the West Wycombe visit is the St Lawrence’s Church. We drove up a very narrow road to get to it, then when we got to the church we decided to walk up the bellfry. Man that was high! Plus it was very narrow, at one point I got stuck, but I did make it to the top, and got some pictures from the top. Great views from the top of the church.


 


 


 


 


 


 


West Wycombe Hellfire Caves

Part of West Wycombe is underground in caves. It was nice and cold down in them. A nice releif from the heat. As expected lighting wasn’t very good there, but I did what I could with the conditions available. Some I had to switch to black and white as the colours were not very good. Now reading the various posters around the caves, there’s a reason they are called Hellfire, they are directly under the the church, but the shenanigans that went on in there, can only be suggested.


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


West Wycombe Park

West Wycombe Park. A National Trust place, fortunately we are now members of the National Trust, and so we can get in free. It was very nice walking around the area, and seeing the views here. The house was open too, but photography wasn’t allowed inside, so soory, you won’t see what I saw there.
