In November 2015 Chris Behan undertook to provide pictures of the village and its residents for the website, contributing almost 350 images. (Click here to see these images). They have brought much enjoyment to the many online visitors but their collection has represented a mammoth one man effort. However, support is now at hand. Encouraged by the establishment of the Sulgrave Camera Club there are are now numbers of keen photographers in the village whose photographs deserve to be seen on this page. All ages are represented and this should ensure a variety of individual perspectives of the village.

However, it is not necessary to be a member of the Camera Club to take part. Photographs will be welcomed from any villager who has captured an interesting perspective or event, perhaps on a mobile phone camera.

Please email photographs to [email protected]. Those who do not have access to the internet and still produce paper prints or slides are not excluded. These can be copied and uploaded to the website.

(Sorry to be pedantic. It’s the Moreton Road. It’s never been a gated road! Either way the surface is a travesty of its former self. Ed.)

On one of the few fine evenings in June, members of the Sulgrave Camera Club were on location in and around the churchyard with a view to producing images illustrating the theme “exploring the way different lighting conditions affect photography”. Seven photographs from the evening are reproduced below:
