Hedon Viewfinders Photography Visit to Water’s Edge, Barton POSTPONED

HEDON Viewfinders are having a trip across the Humber Bridge to Waters’ Edge at Barton-upon-Humber on Wednesday 27 June 2018 (instead of our regular meeting). We will be meeting to visit the woodland, wetlands and wild flower meadows area at 7:30pm in the free car parking area at the Visitor Centre.

HEDON Viewfinders have POSTPONED the trip across the Humber Bridge to Waters’ Edge at Barton-upon-Humber. We will re-schedule the visit and let members know.

One of our members describes a visit to Waters’ Edge:

“Several ponds, all accessible by a network of interesting footpaths, small woods, wild flowers, birds, etc. A 15min walk along the Humber Bank from Waters’ Edge will take you to Far Ings Nature Reserve, with more ponds and several bird hides. Barton Haven with a small boat yard, moored boats and an old barge. The Humber Bridge which you can walk under and looks quite spectacular from underneath. To finish there is The Sloop Inn close by for a night cap.”

Directions: From the north (and please consider car-sharing and offering lifts to those from the club without transport) – take the first exit after the Humber Bridge (A15), signposted Barton upon Humber. Brown signs will direct you through the town to Waters’ Edge. The country park is at the very end of Maltkiln Road and there is a large free car park immediately to the left as you enter the park. If you are using a satnav, enter the postcode DN18 5JR into your device to navigate your way to Waters’ Edge.

See: Visiting Waters’ Edge on the North Lincolnshire Council website.

Note: All our outdoor photo trips are weather dependent. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by cancelling due to inclement weather.

Hedon Viewfinders is the town’s free, fun and friendly photography club whose events and activities are open to all (no membership required). All welcome!

Photo Walk around ancient Hedon – Sun 27 May 2018

Hedon Viewfinders Photography Club is hosting a Photowalk around the ancient town on Sunday, May 27 2018 meeting outside the Haven Arms on Havenside at 1pm.

North Cave WetlandsPeople with an interest in photography from across Hull and Holderness are invited and the Viewfinders will show some of the best spots in the town to take photos that represent both the historical and rural aspects of the place.

Easy going stroll across both trails and pavements (but take heed of the weather and wear appropriate footwear in case trails are muddy). The circular route will finish at the Haven Arms about 3pm’ish.

Members of the club attended a photowalk around Hull City Centre arranged by the Hull Creative Photography group, and the Hedon walk is a reciprocal visit.

Announcement: Some of you may have heard by now of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) coming into effect May 25, 2018 – basically, in order to continue to receive updates from the Viewfinders website, subscribers have to give their permission again. In my case this coincides with me ceasing to use my current web host and using a free service instead. This means the current website at http://www.viewfinders-ttl.online will change, to be replaced by a much simpler version (this one!). With the launch of the new website, I will email out to our 100 or so subscribers and ask them to renew their interest once again. Hope to get all this in place by Fri 25th. Sorry for any inconvenience. – Ray Duffill.
