Essex Bridge, Staffordshire https://www.ravenphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/essex-bridge-staffordshire Originally called the Shugborough Bridge, Essex Bridge is a Grade 1 listed packhorse bridge that spans the River Trent carrying the Staffordshire Way. Crossing the bridge takes you from Great Haywood to the Shugborough Estate.

Essex Bridge, StaffordshireEssex Bridge, StaffordshireOne of the oldest and unaltered pack horse bridges in England. This bridge lies over the River Trent. It was built in 1550 by the then Earl of Essex for Queen Elizabeth I, so that when she visited the estate she could go hunting in the woodland around the local village. The bridge was built in 1550 by the Earl of Essex who at the time lived at the nearby Chartley Castle. It was built for Queen Elizabeth 1, so that when she visited the Shugborough estate she could go hunting in the woodland around the local village.

It is the longest remaining packhorse bridge in England, although it only has fourteen of it's original forty round span arches left. These original 40 arches extended into Shugborough Park.

It was built in 1550 by the then Earl of Essex for Queen Elizabeth I, so that when she visited the estate she could go hunting in the woodland around the local village. It is the least altered old bridge in the country, being almost as it was when it was built. The parapets were build low purposely to allow packhorse loads to cross without rubbing on the stonework. The bays were for people to stand in to allow the packhorses across. It is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful in any season, whether you choose to walk the Shugborough Estate, the canal, the woods, the river or the village, it is worth a visit.

Lud's Church, The Peak District https://www.ravenphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/2/luds-church-the-peak-district Lud's Church is a deep chasm penetrating the Millstone Grit bedrock caused by a massive landslip on the hillside above the village of Gradbach, Staffordshire.

While not actually being a church per se, it is steeped in history and myths. The Lollards, who were a form of Christians in the early 15th century are said to have worshipped here secretly, to hide from persecution for their religious beliefs. There has also been much discussion on whether the chasm is the setting of 'The Green Chapel' in the medieval poem 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight'. 

We did a short walk, about 2 1/2 miles from The Roaches, through the woods.

Through The Woods, The Peak DistrictThrough The Woods, The Peak District

 

It is a rocky walk down, although it wasn't too muddy when walked, which was lucky. After a short but steep decline, the path then starts to rise. You will pass a few different signposts directing you the correct way to walk, as this is a very popular place for tourists.

You soon come upon Lud's Church, although you may not notice it. The first sign you are there is a hole in the ground, which when you look in, leads to a very deep hidden chasm. 

Walk to the steps and head down into the chasm and you will soon be dwarfed by its sheer size, which is almost completely hidden as you walk above it. It is tucked away in the ground. Surprising, as it is around 328 foot long and 59 foot deep.

The walk back is pleasant, if not a bit steep in places. Although when you reach the top of the path you are rewarded with incredible views across Staffordshire and Cheshire.

When you reach the top of the path, you will see a signpost. You can continue your walk, following the sign. We chose to head back towards the roaches.

Devlin https://www.ravenphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/12/devlin Devlin visited our studio last week to have her photoshoot in the studio before her surgery, that was scheduled for this week. This, unfortunately, meant she was going to miss the Christmas shoot at Pets Take Away next week.

Devlin is a rescue Greyhound who is going through quite a few health issues at the moment, so we wanted to make sure that she didn't miss her opportunity to shine.

Se we welcomed Devlin and her owners Lauren and Alasdair to the studio and she was a fantastic model! After lots of treats and many, many cuddles, she settled down and showed us how it is done! 


She was so chilled out in the studio that we thought some lovely Autumnal photographs would look great, so we brought out the leaves and as you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed the attention. Naturally posing, lying very still and generally enjoying herself.

We wish Devlin a speedy recovery and hope she enjoys lots of spoiling and cuddles after her surgery.

You can view all of the images from this photoshoot here
