A visit from Anto

My very good friend Anto Guerra-Gabaldón came to stay. We went out with my son William and spent a night around Kelham Island…including eating at Cutlery Works. The photo is Anto’s picture collage.

Cycle around Ladybower

We drove over to Ladybower Reservoir in Derbyshire and cycled around the three dams with my son William. We parked just before Fairholmes  and cycled along the road to  Derwent Reservoir then Howden Reservoir and over the old packhorse bridge at Slippery Stones and back round the other side to Ladybower Reservoir.

Great day out! And the last proper day out as William got a job soon after and most of his time currently is spent revising for exams or working. Hopefully we’ll do it again in the not too distant future

RIP Dorothy Bargh

dorothy bargh

My mum died today. She’d had a couple of stokes, hardening of arteries and angina in her later years.

She was an inspiration to me – always by my side to help me the best she could with whatever I did.

She made a wrought iron garden bench in metal work night school at the age of 70. She would turn her hand to anything. Her next door neighbour had an Afghan dog. She used clippings of its fur to spin wool and made a waistcoat out of the wool for the neighbour.

She was a keen oil painter and would spend many an evening well into the early hours of the morning painting requests for her friends and neighbours and never charged a penny even though she probably struggled to afford the oil paints and materials.

As a kid she helped me with my collections, tried to help with homework although that was always a struggle, and encouraged me when I took up photography. Always there when I needed her.

She was buried in Wisewood Cemetery on Friday 29 Jan 1993

First colour photo

Peter Bargh aged 2

I remember this photo being on the sideboard for many of my childhood years. It looks like it was a hand coloured black & white photo as the original was taken on a 127 camera on black and white film. It was just after my second birthday.


The frame is a heavy glass fronted one with four screws to hold the glass against a thick wooden backing and the print is sandwiched in the middle.

Where it all began

Well as far back as research takes us (thanks to cousin Andrea Jackson)  is the Vernon family tree which is my mother’s side and is my middle name.
