Land of Oak & Iron photo competition launched!

The Land of Oak & Iron photo competition has been officially launched with the production of our Christmas card, which we have recently sent out. The card shows a beautiful snowy image of Allensford taken by Land of Oak & Iron Volunteer Michael Hall, who lives at Castleside. We are looking for good quality photos showing the wonderful natural, industrial and cultural heritage of this beautiful area through the seasons, also those showing people making the most of it all, perhaps taking part in a Land of Oak & Iron activity.

Pictures will be used as our cover images on Facebook and Twitter (which we’ll change each month), for a 2018 calendar and wintry ones for next years Christmas cards which we’ll be selling, so if you’ve always wanted to see your photography on sale now’s your chance.

Please email images to or contact Kath for more information. By sharing your images we will assume your are happy for us to use them in promotional material, we will credit photographers wherever possible.
