Throughout the Connecting Threads project a group of local people have taken photographs which both record local footpaths and the surrounding countryside, and also aim to capture the atmosphere and mood of particular places.

In February 2014 people were asked to view the photos on Flickr and vote for their favourites. There was a selection criteria given so as to achieve a cross section of different images and the 20 photos chosen were printed and framed for exhibition at the Walking Weekend festival. We are pleased that the Beachamwell Memorial Hall agreed to purchase the pictures which will now remain on permanent display in the village hall.
