  • You will learn how to set your camera’s controls to take longer and/or time-lapse photos in darkness
  • You will learn how to use manual focus to ensure your subject is sharp.

    One of my favourite places in the world . I may have seen a few things in my time , spectacular buildings, coral reef and such but the lakes of England have a unique light and feel. I would happily spend my days here.

    Great day out in the Ebikes. Nice trails for everyone to enjoy. The hire bikes some of our group had were well maintained and the staff were lovely. Happy to help and nothing was no problem 😁

    £0.50 per 15 minutes to park!!! £16.00 for a cheeseburger, chips & a drink!!! There's signs everywhere telling walkers they're not allowed on most trails but cyclists are. I didn't see a single cyclist. A lot of the trees are diseased & fallen. The forest looks sick & I mean that in the unwell sense of the word. Your dog is likely to be shot unless it's on a leash (see photo). This place used to be nice but I wouldn't recommend going here any more. It's just a money grab & all the restrictions for walkers make it pointless.
