An interesting feature.  Love the stills. I've tried the Mastershots feature, but I think individual Quickshots are more effective.

Amazing footage Chris.    Looks like you had great weather to shoot this video.  I've been around the world and visited over 65 countries and seen more lighthouses than I can count but this is the very first lightship I've seen.

That’s great to hear, we had loads of them around the UK, all redundant now I’m afraid. But like classic UK phone boxes, they look great…

Yes. The church is left unlocked and there are some nice stone carvings inside.  There’s a couple of free parking spaces at  51.9755892, 0.7848828
