Photography - I'm hoping to get good at it.


Battlefield touring - totally absorbing and deeply emotional stuff.

Music - can't play a note, but have been engrossed in it since I joined the Melody Maker in 1977.


Collecting old/foreign bank notes (this is a very casual thing - it crops up from time to time - I was big into it as a yoof, but usually confine myself to stuff from my travels or those of friends....)

Collecting die cast models (a largely dormant hobby - but I am always looking for something different - Authenticast & heirs are my latest flames).

Collecting military helmets (only the cheap stuff as and when found. There were hundreds at W&P and all I bought was film prop guns and odds and sods).


I'll soon think of something else...........

Both Val and I shoot clay pigeon most weekends and we used to do a lot of ballroom dancing not so long ago. Funnily enough, she commented that my idea of a good weekend was camping with the lads and the Ferret, while hers was a hotel, champagne and shopping with the girls.

Who said our hobby was expensive......

Studied and read rural history since the 70's all comes from watching Jack Hargreaves. I focused heavly on our woodland history. I am still speechless with regards to the skills of our old woodland craftsmen.
