13. Liverpool

Meeting location: The Open Eye Gallery, Mann Island, Liverpool

Meeting time: 12pm

Photowalk Leader: Rachel Brewster-Wright (

Description: We'll be starting at the amazing Open Eye Gallery (the Northwest's preeminent photography gallery) taking a walk along the Strand / UNESCO waterfront for some classic dockside architecture and up and along Water Street.

We'll take a sneaky peek down Queen Avenue (a little hidden gem) then along towards the Cultural Quarter including a stop off at Liverpool Central Library for shots inside the stunning foyer (and perhaps up to the rooftop depending on weather).

Finally, we'll walk past the Walker Art Gallery and along the front of St. George's Hall, finishing at Lime Street Station.

There will (hopefully!) be the extra option, for those who would like to visit, to also hop on the underground at Lime Street, for a 6 minute journey to visit my Darkroom & Studio in Hamilton Square, Birkenhead (sadly non-accessible due to the nature of the heritage building).

Walking distance: Approx 2.5hrs I think, ending at Lime Street Station for people to grab coffee / food from outlets there, or alternatively hop on the train and grab a cuppa & cake at Liberty Bell cafe in Hamilton Square opposite my Darkroom & Studio

Accessibility comments: Liverpool is generally quite a busy city (especially at weekends). There are likely to be crowds of people, but most of the route will take place through mainly pedestrianised areas with more space around, rather than narrow pathways.

The whole of the main route is accessible / flat without stairs or with additional options i.e. ramps too. There are some areas which are cobbled. These can be circumnavigated if needed.

Regarding the optional extra (my Darkroom & Studio): if visiting my Darkroom & Studio in Hamilton Square, the Square itself is accessible, but due to the original layout of the heritage building, my Darkroom has to be accessed via an external flight of stairs to the basement and my Studio access is via 2 flights of internal stairs.

The whole of the main route is accessible (please see above) and service animals are welcome in any of the buildings we'd be going inside (i.e. the Library, the gallery, the cafe)

I am able to communicate with VERY basic sign language (currently taking my toddler to BSL classes) but would LOVE to learn & train in this properly one day , for exactly this kind of situation and my workshops.

During the summertime many of the areas we pass through will be fairly busy, there will be plenty of cafés on the route if folk are in need of refreshments, though. Plus, many benches along the way on the meadows and princes street gardens to rest. Due to the nature of the route, we are unable to accommodate for wheelchair users on this walk. Although service animals are welcome as the whole walk will take place outdoors.

We can avoid the steps on our way to quayside and take the pavement which is steep in places. "Newcastle is fairly open, all locations are accessible for service animals. I know the city well if someone needed a restroom I could locate one fairly quickly. I can judge it on the day, the north east weather is fickle and if it’s particularly wet and windy I can adjust it so that everyone is comfortable.

I have planed a 5.7 km walk through the old canals of Manchester the new building of Deansgate up to the bustling Northern quarter back through china town to meet again in saint peters square with many more stops along the way 

Walking distance: 5.7km

Accessibility comments: We will be walking on narrow old cobble roads and some stair ways but alternate paths are available. The entire walk will be outside with possible public indoor areas depending on what people would like to do but nothing that inhibits the walk 


40. Portsmouth

Meeting location: The Square, (opposite Vue Cinema), Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth PO1 3TZ

Meeting time: 12pm

Photowalk Leader: Barry Fryer (

Description: We will meet in the Square in the centre of Gunwharf, and then take a slow walk around the Spinnaker Tower and then onto Old Portsmouth / Camber Docks. Portsmouth is a very busy harbour so there will be a lot of activity on the water with traffic entering and leaving the harbour.

Walking distance: The walk will be approx 5km and is mostly level for access.

Accessibility comments: Accessibility in the area is generally good. We are not allowed to use tripods inside Gunwharf Quays but they may be used with caution in Old Portsmouth. Service animals are very welcome.

Summer of Phoenix: A Holiday in Greece

I spent last week on the Greek coast - the southern tip of the Peloponnese to be exact - and took the opportunity to shoot some Harman Phoenix 35mm film! While it was brilliant fun to test it through the dark winter days when it first launched in December 2023, I've been waiting to see it shine in the sun.
