After the big storm in 1987, lots of the trees on the Garrison were uprooted. This shot shows on particularly fine specimen, shown here in 1988 and 1992.
The Fraggle Rock cafe / restaurant on Bryher, pictured here in 1991 (before it got extended) and 2006 (with it’s snazzy new restaurant). I remember back in the ’80s when it wasn’t even a pub – more of a cafe if I remember correctly?
Cromwell’s Castle seen from the top of the hill on Tresco, pictured here in 1989 and 2006. Cromwell had this castle built looking out over Tresco Harbour, using some of the stones from King Charles’ Castle at the top of the hill.
Camel Rock on St Marys, pictured here in 1987 and 2006. The annual Scilly music festival takes place at Camel Rock each year.

The world famous Bishop Rock Lighthouse, seen here way back in 1969 and then more recently in 2005 and 2006. According to the Guiness Book of world records, Bishop Rock is listed as the world’s smallest island – and you can read more about it at the Trinity House website. The shot from 2005 was…
Having got back from a busy Christmas all over the country, Sara decided to take some initiative and rip up the kitchen floor! Parts of it have been peeling up intermitently for a while, but after we left the fridge defrosting while we were away a lot more of it had come up. So we…
This is a bit of a work-in-progress job – sorting out the part of the toilet room that was previously behind a cupboard. Sadly, the previous owners decided not to bother plastering it properly when they installed the new boiler, and instead just stuck a load of cruddy posters and letters over the top. Obviously…
