Have your say

STORIES of old stones will be the subject of a new photographic exhibition.

Photographer and history graduate Josephine Payter has put together a display of images of castles and monuments.

She said: ‘I’m absolutely passionate about this country’s rich and vibrant history.

‘We are a land of castles and ancient monuments. Our history is evident everywhere you tread.

‘The British countryside is a unique tapestry of historic buildings, each with their own fascinating story.’

All of the photographs were taken on an iPad or iPhone.

Subjects range from Tintagel Castle in Cornwall to Netley Abbey closer to home.

The exhibition is on at The Spring, in East Street, Havant, until April 1.

Heritage manager at The Spring, Kate Saunders, added: ‘A self-confessed escapist, Josephine loves wandering around the ruins of castles grand houses and religious sites, and the result is this collection of photographs which have been taken over the past two years.’
