Controlled Burning in The New Forest

Annual controlled burning across the New Forest can look alarming but the process has real benefits for the Forest environment and the area will quickly recover. The practice is still widely used in spring time, particularly on grouse moors in northern England, to promote the regeneration of fresh young growth. It also has the additional benefit of reducing ticks and the risk of Lymes Disease.

borough Market-3449A year on from the terror attack at London Bridge, ES magazine revisited the famous Borough Market to see how  the traders have bounced back. Photographing the various characters it was clear to see the sense of unity and camaraderie amongst all who work at the capital’s oldest market. Former offshore fisherman Paul Day, 55, whose stall, Sussex Fish describes the first week back after the incident:

‘I’ve never seen anything like it — the reaction was amazing,’ he says, tears welling up. ‘The amount of hugging! There’s a young girl who walks through here in the mornings on her way to school called Matilda and she came through with a heart she’d made for me and her dad said, “She’s been really worried about you.” I just broke down in tears.’

Telephone Box Graveyard

Unicorn Phone Boxes_Michael Clement-68

Where Phone boxes go to die?

The red telephone box is an icon of 20th century British design. Once commonplace on every street corner and village green, the telephone box is now a rare sight.In 2002 there were 92000 BT payphones across the Uk. Today thanks to mobile phones and 3G/4G connectivity, just 9400 red traditional boxes remain.

Designed by Sir Giles Gibert Scott, the original prototype is still under the left arch at the entrance to the Royal academy.The first telephone kiosks appeared inside shops and hotels in the early 1900s. Since that date there have been a host of variants of design including the original K2 model which stood at 9ft 4in and measured 3ft 6 across.

However all is not lost as the various redesigned variants are highly sought after by collectors.There’s a cemetry like no other just outside London.Dubbed the largest know ‘Telephone Box Graveyard’ you’ll find around 70 Kiosks currently laid to rest. Many of these long lost icons are being brought back to life  by craftsmen at  Unicorn Restorations. Once cleaned and restored these can cost anywhere between £2000 and £10000 each.
