David’s studio.  The sunlight filtering through the foliage bathes everything in an eldritch green.

David addressing the group in his studio.  I was amazed at the care with which his many lathes were maintained.  They were clearly well loved and well used, but they were also immaculate!

Bowls_Room

Upstairs in the former snooker room, a selection of turned bowls and windows.  This shot and the next are of particular interest to ITE 2017 Fellow Megan McGlynn due to the confluence of natural and artificial light.
