Book on Somerdale

03rd June 2011
A culmination of photographic material from the Somerdale factory project, I have now produced a book also entitled 'Sunset on Somerdale'. Containing 80 pages and divided into five main areas, this is now available to purchase through the Blurb bookstore.

An excerpt from the introduction:

"Sunset on Somerdale is a visual ramble around the factory at its operational tail-end; around its inner compounds, amongst its snaking pipe work, old valve wheels, towering silos and other assorted industrial relics and scattered curiosities; beneath gantries and scaling the rooftops where outlets steamed until recently - but no longer. From further away where panoramic vistas were afforded by access to the tops of nearby landmarks and from the surrounding expanse of countryside, offering some final glimpses of smoke from the Power House chimney lingering over the Avon Valley; from where the transition of day to night is marked by the illumination of the blazing rows of windows which will soon be all but extinguished."
