Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, I've been collecting on & off since ~ 1975. I have a particular interest in the minerals of the Peak District & of northern England. Collecting-wise I've been a little dormant of late, but my interest has re-awakened as a consequence of getting into photography. I'll hopefully be getting the more photogenic or otherwise interesting pieces from my collection on here.
