Scope and content

Photographs and negatives of a wide range of dates covering both general site photographs, fixed-point photography positions and images and images of individual species from the site. Photographs include ornithological images by acclaimed zoological photographer Arthur Gilpin.

A small series of images shows the unveiling of the new interpretation boards in 1996 and examples of conservation grazing.

A series of negatives, originally contained in an envelope addressed to Williiam Sessions, include two packets of photographic negatives labelled 'Fitter' and annotated negative thumbnails relating to images that appear in the book 'A Wood in Ascam'. There are also additional images which were not used in the final edition of the book.

There are also several photocopies of aerial photographs of the site, the originals of which are available in Swindon.
