Share your photographs!

Have you noticed that this website has hundreds of historical photographs of the Heath and the surrounding areas, but few recent photographs? Yes, so have I, and you are invited to help fix it!

This is the first of’s seasonal competitions, on the theme of Spring. You’re invited to share your photographs - or artwork, if you’re handier with a paintbrush - with us, and with our readers. I’m looking for quality, interesting images of the Heath, whether of the landscape, people on the Heath and the surrounding area, or of wildlife.

What do you win? For now, just the fame and glory that comes with your image being featured on this site. Your images will be featured in a spring roundup on this blog, and (with your permission) the best photos will be included in the picture galleries and on the main pages of the site, too (credited to you, of course!).

I’m looking for a local sponsor so that I can offer an actual prize next time, so do get in touch if your business, restaurant or café would be interested.

How do you enter? Send your photos (or a digital scan of your artwork) to by 31st May 2019*. Please include your name and a short caption.

What can you submit? Entries shot on either film or digital cameras (including good quality smartphones), or scans of artwork, are eligible. There is no limit on the age, but images should be high quality (ideally upward of 1000 pixels wide). Up to three images per entrant.

*I previously gave a different email address, but it is experiencing issues with receiving emails. If you submitted something to that email address, please forward it to Sorry for the trouble :)
