Steve Stamford | Pin mill wrecks 1

Pin mill wrecks 1

On the banks of the river Orwell a number of abandoned boats sit slowly decaying with each passing day. Other than one that has the optimistic graffiti For Sale painted on it I have not so far found any other details of them. Images taken from drone - I am CAA PfCO licensed.

In chains

These rusty chain links are on one of the abandoned vessels at Pin Mill wrecks on the banks of the Orwell in Suffolk. Whilst rust has a strong hold the thickness of the links mean I think they will survive another few years.

Organ stops shallow dof

This row of organ stops belong to a church organ which judging by the cobwebs does not get a lot of use. This version of the image features a shallow depth of field which leaves just the first one sharp and the rest receding to softness. A fully sharp version is also available.

Saint Edmund the King Martyr

In the picturesque village of Thurne in Norfolk is this beautiful church to Saint Edmund the King Martyr and being in 'the Brads' does of course have a thatched roof. It is noted for having a hole in the wall so that leppers could observe the altar and service without actually being allowed in.

This is a wind pump (not a windmill) at Thurne on the Norfolk Broads. Many hundreds of these were built to harness wind power and drain the surrounding land so it could be used for farming. Only a few remain in good repair having been rescued by assorted trusts and volunteer groups over the years.
