  • Marmite town meet - Danes Banned!

    The East Midlands meet in April seemed to go quite well
    How about planning another but slightly to the West

    To support that great British Institution (love it or hate it) what about Burton on Trent ?
    I have to be admit I'm not familar with the photographic attractions other than the breweries.
    E1, E520, ED14-42, ED 40-150, 70-300, Various legacy including 50mm f2 macro.

    Burton has the breweries, Martmite factory (of course) the Stapenhill gardens are also worth a visit, and there is an old bridge (Ferry Bridge) over the trent,

        There's little of interest to shoot in the town centre apart from the bridge Caroline mentions, but the immediate countryside is lovely, going towards Barton-under-Needwood or King's Bromley.

          That sounds like a challenge to me

            Just down the road is Fradley which is a reasonable busy canal junction, with a pub and nice little cafe.

            Been there a few times when visiting the mother-in-law and it's good for an hours stroll and a few photos.

              There is a nice marina at the entrance of Barton, 5mn down the road from Burton on the A38.

                Yes, Barton is good, there is a marina there, can get shots of barges on the canal as well.
