The interior of the incomparable Oxford University Museum of Natural History, where each column is a different native rock and each capital is a different biologically correct plant whilst the overall effect is that of the skeleton of the building and animals intertwined. The use of iron colums and glass to let so much light in the space was a precursor to the hi tech movement in modern architecture. The building was designed by Thomas Newenham Deane and Benjamin Woodward in 1850. The roof has recently been restored so the decoration is much clearer.

Part four of a photo series based on a walk along the entire 354km length of United Kingdom’s longest river, The Severn.

This section ran 13km from Chepstow under the Severn Bridge at Beachley.

An unusual feature of the suspension cables carrying the deck is that they are not vertical, as for most suspension bridges, but rather arranged in a zig-zag fashion, with adjacent mounts closely spaced. The triangulation this offers is an attempt to reduce vibration. The chief engineer for the project was Gilbert Roberts of the firm Freeman Fox & Partners.

Gloucester Cathedral Choir, Gloucestershire, England

The gothic choir of Gloucester cathedral is a unique and spectacular work, the walls so heavily panelled as to suggest a huge stone cage (disguising the Norman arches behind) crowned by a glorious net-like vault adorned with numerous bosses (those over the Altar with superb figures of Christ and angels) whilst the east wall is entirely glazing in delicate stone tracery, and still preserving most of it’s original 14th century stained glass. The soaring central tower, also richly panelled with delicate pinnacles, is another testament to the abbey’s increasing wealth at this time.

“Whispering Death” was the nick name for the F-111 fighter-bomber that were housed inside these Hardened Aircraft Shelters during the cold war in the RAF Upper Heyford, Quick Reaction Alert Facility, UK. I thought the moniker was also an apt title for this series of photographs of the military paranoia of the era. Crews sat for four hour shifts in nuclear-armed F-111 bombers, engines running in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside ready to respond to any Soviet threat at a moments notice. The facility is the best preserved Cold War Airfield in Europe.
