Description The Church of St Michael the Archangel, Shalfleet, Isle of Wight, England. This medieval, Grade I listed church, in the tiny village of Shalfleet was built almost like a fortress. The walls are 5 feet thick and the sturdy looking tower with battlements, had a secret room only accessible from a door on the roof. The tower, dating from 1070, was a place of refuge for the residents, during attacks by the French. Unusually, a 3 pound gun was kept in the tower. Much later, the gun and the church bells were sold to fund the addition of a steeple in circa 1800, but the steeple had to be removed in 1912 after becoming unsafe. The church currently has two bells.

Hi, my name is Rod and I live in Burton upon Trent, United Kingdom, a town which is known internationally as the capital of British brewing.
Photography has been my passion and main interest since my parents gave me a Kodak Brownie 127 for my 8th birthday. I still have the Brownie and I still have the 1920s Praktica which I bought second-hand a few years later, as my first 35mm SLR. I have covered most aspects of photography, but my preference is for landscape, nature and architectural photography. I am also keen on night shots and I enjoy snorkelling and underwater photography.
I love to travel, and I always have a camera with me where ever I go, ready to capture the unexpected as well as the planned shots. I try to use as little editing as possible with my digital work and I limit this to cropping and the occasional colour correction.
Well, thank you for visiting. Please browse through some of my pictures, and I hope that you find something of interest.
