New! An e-Card feature for images!

Most images (but not the 2009 -10 ones - sorry!) can be e-mailed to friends. (Note that some anti-spam software may cause them to be rejected, and sending images to a friend at their work e-mail address may not go down to well with the boss!)
The link is at the bottom of the individual image pages.


Search for images!

With about 2000 images in the galleries, finding what you want can be a chore.Why not try a search? Type in a word (eg. Beach) or phrase (eg. whitmore bay) and see what turns up!

Porthkerry Road under snow

Quick and dirty 2010 photos. The year started with snow, and ended with snow. So there's a lot of snow! And Swans. The Windy Woods, the new Thompson Street footbridge, Cosmeston Country Park, Romilly Park ponds, Llantwit Major beach, Porthkerry Woods and Park, Cold Knap, the Scout Fete, and the Art4U Friendship Tree Concert.

The Old Harbour at Dusk

A quick and dirty upload of the 2009 pictures - uncaptioned and unsearchable at the moment, but treat it as a challenge - see how many locations you can identify! There are Nell's Point views, the Thompson Street Footbridge building site, the Holton Road Tesco Express, an injured swan on Barry Dock, the Knap and lake, including the swan evacuation, the Pride in Barry Blue Plaque ceremony, and erection of the Christmas Tree on King Square.

End of an era - the Theatre Royal closes it's doors for the last time.

Not a good year for photography! Quite a bit on the Knap lake clearance fiasco, plus a few local landmark changes. Must do better in 2009!

St Barruc's Chapel, Barry Island

A selection of photographs dealing mainly with historical aspects of Barry, used for illustration in the forthcoming history pages. I'm not even an amateur historian, so if anyone disagrees with my captions, I'd be pleased to correct them!

Also, if anyone has any old photographs that they are prepared to allow me to use, I'd be delighted!

Whitmore Bay

As Spring arrives, so do the people, and the "touristy" parts of Barry become more popular - especially Barry Island.
