Convent Walk and Quay Christchurch Dorset


Below is a small selection of my photos taken in Christchurch Dorset, where I live. I do hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
Above is Ye old ' Town Bridge' over the River Avon.

Designed to commemorate important sites and people over the last millennium, the Blue Plaques scheme consists of a trail around the town centre with eighteen cast-aluminium blue plaques full of detailed information and backed up with an impressive and colourful leaflet covering many more sites on the trail: 44 in total, each depicted by a miniature watercolour drawing and with a large-scale map of the town with the early features marked. The entire trail will take you between two and three hours to cover; a leaflet is available from the Tourist Information Centre in the High Street and at the Red House Museum, priced 75p. (The illustration is by artist Brian Green, who has postcards of the image for sale in aid if the McMillan Cancer Fund.) Leaflet extract above is part of the explanatory leaflet to accompany the Blue Plaques Millennium Trail (Artwork by Eric Cockain)

This small waterfall aerates the waters of the Millstream, as the surplus water flows out into the River Avon.


Above is seen Constable's House. Now in ruins this Norman style house was allegedly, the living quarters of the residents of Christchurch Castle. It is quite unique, due the fact that it is one of only five Norman chimneys surviving in England. The building now finds itself in the grounds of Christchurch Bowling Green. Information on The Christchurch Millennium Project,maybe useful to those doing research.
