Learnt that one of our favourite photographers Sir Simon Marsden, 4th Bt, had died at the age of 63.  He was a photographer specialising in haunting and atmospheric subjects such as ruins, moonlit abbeys and graveyards.  His ghostly black and white images that were characteristic of his style appeared in many magazines and books like "The Haunted Realm: Echoes from Beyond the Tomb", "Phantoms of the Isles: Further Tales from the Haunted Realm" and "This Spectred Isle: A Journey Through Haunted England". They even featured recognisable images from Dorset including Athelhampton House, Knowlton Rings and Bettiscombe Manor.
