This is a portfolio site whose main intention is to deliver a collection of my photographs and writings for your personal enjoyment. It also tells you about my illustrated book Narrowboat Life and where to buy it, and how to have your boat professionally photographed if you're so inclined.

The only cookies used on this website are for web-stats – to give me a glimpse of what's popular and what's not, and to occasionally nudge the site's design to improve your visiting experience.
There are no ad-tracking cookies, Google Analytics, third-party or preference cookies. It's just not that kind of place.
If you're in Europe, EU law requires express permission to store and retrieve data about your browsing habits – thus the annoying 'cookie consent banner' seen at the bottom of the page. If you are happy to consent, the banner will disappear for 90 days worth of subsequent visits. If you object, it's time to visit someone else's boating and waterways website.
