The Graham Beckley collection

Over the years long standing member of the society Graham Beckley has used his skills and camera equipment to record many of society events. The galleries cover the range of his activities and interests. 

These black and white photos show the Beckley Garage, the blessing of Brierley Hill's first ambulance (stabled in the garage) and the Brierley Hill Fire Brigade. 

Graham is the author of the book 'Our Stour' which traces the course of the river on its route from a source in the Clent Hills to meeting the Severn in Stourport. He took over 600 images along the course of the river. 240 were published in the book and here for the first time is a gallery of the others.  All images are copyright of Graham Beckley.  Scroll through the slide presentation below to view the locations Graham had to brave to get his superb images for the book.
