Another shot on a film that I really should shoot again, Ilford SFX 200.

Southwell Minster is a striking building, easily dominating the small Nottinghamshire town of Southwell and in spite of only being 25 miles from my home I haven’t been back since 1997! Time to place a film order with Analogue Wonderland and plan a day out I think!

Fountains Abbey near Ripon in North Yorkshire was founded in 1132 and became one of the wealthiest monasteries in England until its dissolution in 1539 under the order of Henry VIII.

Now a Grade I listed building, the abbey is owned by the National Trust.

Ilford SFX 200 is a film I really should shoot again, I rather like its effects…
