    Spray Paint & Inspiration

    Gavin Conwill, aka street photographer Urban Shutterbug, talks Nottingham’s vibrant street art scene.

    Nottingham is being steadily nurtured into a pivotal hub for urban art. The genre once frowned upon but subsequently popularised by ‘Banksy’ et al, is now finding a home in the heart of the midlands.

    For an art form to flourish, it needs passionate innovators. One of the early protagonists responsible for Nottingham’s rise is artist ‘Dilk’. Held in high esteem throughout the Graffiti community Stephen Dilks has been a driving force on the local scene.

    UK Dairy Day: Spotlight on Colston Bassett Dairy

    Nottinghamshire is proud to be home to Colston Bassett Dairy – world-renowned makers of Stilton and Shropshire Blue cheese.

    Set in the heart of the Vale of Belvoir, the dairy formed in 1913 when the village doctor, Dr William Windley, suggested that local farmers set up a cooperative to make cheese, in order to add value to their excess milk.

    This cooperative has remained in place for more than a century; with milk now sourced from four farms all located within a 1.5-mile radius of the dairy.

    Outstanding milk, combined with traditional production techniques and the talents of expert cheesemakers, result in exceptional quality cheese and Colston Bassett continues to receive top industry
