Roland Wiese and his wife are frequent visitors from Germany to Weirford House. The following text is Roland’s description of how his images are created.“In principle, this is a method by which an overall picture is created using many small photographs. For “Connectografie” I often use up to 90 or more photographs. These images, after printing, are mounted on a support material, so that the original view is recreated. The “Connectografie” is not a fragmented and reassembled photo as a first glance may imply. It is the sum total of many individual images each taken from a slightly different angle.”

The Prayer Book Rebellion
To commemorate the 450th anniversary of the 1549 Prayer Book Rebellion a permanent exhibition has been set up in the Parish Church of St Andrew, Sampford Courtenay. The church is worth a visit as it has some interesting roof bosses and an excellent peal of bells.The Devon part of the rebellion began in Sampford Courtenay and ended tragically in a fierce battle in the village in which the rebel forces were completely routed.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/prayer/prayer_book_rebellion
