Welcome to the Buriton Wheelbarrow.

What on earth is a Buriton Wheelbarrow I hear you saying (unless you've been here before in which case you've gone straight to the links at the bottom of the page) and, as the saying goes, that's a very good question.

Two part answer.

Buriton is a medium sized village two and half miles outside Petersfield in East Hampshire. Like any good village it has a Church, duck pond and two pubs! To find out more about Buriton follow the link below.

Wheelbarrow is a somewhat more convoluted link. Part of the Web Site (well most really) is a display of Railway Photography. During travels through Europe in the late 1980s and early 1990s friends and I were constantly struck by the paraphernalia dotted around locomotive depots. The common denominator, regardless of country, was a wheelbarrow.

I have always joked that if I ever started a photo library I would call it Wheelbarrow. This isn't exactly a photo library as the scanned images are not the quality of the original silver halide slides or negatives (the electronic image hasn't got that far yet) but I hope that they will entertain. Oh, and of course, there is usually at least one with a wheelbarrow somewhere!
