The Needles

SOLD - The Needles is a row of three distinctive stacks of chalk that rise out of the sea off the western extremity of the Isle of Wight. The Needles lighthouse stands at the end of the formation. Built in 1859, it has been automated since 1994. The formation takes its name from the former fourth needle-shaped pillar called Lot's Wife that used to stand in its midst until it collapsed in a storm in 1764. The remaining rocks are all short and squat and not at all needle-like, but the name has stuck.

 
The Solent J class racing

The Solent J class racing

FOR SALE - In the 1930s, the J Class yachts raced under the Universal rule, this rule used waterline length, displacement and sail area to control the racing condition and rating of these Formula One racing yachts of their day. nNow in the present day, there is mixture of refitted surviving yachts along with a number of new yachts built to original hull lines with more yachts in build now and planning to be built in the future. These yachts can no longer be raced in their original designed conditions due to their luxury interiors and the need to adhere to modern marine standards and as a result their speed potentials are different. Their performances are also determined by their overall design and it was decided to use a modern velocity performance prediction technique to better estimate each yacht’s performance across a range of wind speeds and course types to produce fair racing and rating.The class has long, historic links with The Solent . Velsheda - which was built in 1933 at Camper & Nicholson - won many trophies on these waters, notably including the Kings Cup at Cowes Week in 1935.

Tromso Sun shade and snow

Tromso Sun shade and snow

FOR SALE - Located 350 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is the capital of the Arctic, surrounded by beautiful fjords and mountains. In spite of its location so far north, Tromsø enjoys a moderate oceanic climate. From 20 May to 22 July, the midnight sun is a special experience, with daylight 24 hours for two months. Between 21 November and 21 January, the sun disappears below the horizon and the polar night sets in. It is not completely dark in the middle of the day, however, and the light and colour in the sky during that time of year is very special - it is called the blue twilight. Tromsø is among the best places on earth to observe the northern lights, with a season that lasts from September throughout March. However, chances of spotting the northern lights depend on the cloud cover and the amount of solar activity and are therefore difficult to predict.

 
Venice Drinks at florians

Venice Drinks at florians

FOR SALE - Cafe Florian is a coffee house situated in the Procuratie Nuove of Piazza San Marco, Venice. It was established in 1720, and is the oldest coffee house in continuous operation. One of Italy's oldest and most popular coffee rooms, Florian’s was always a favourite haunt of the rich, famous and erudite - and still is. Charles Dickens, Henry James, Lord Byron - even Casanova - are all known to have called in for coffee. In more recent times Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were seen there during the filming of “The Tourist”. Although within the last five years two other Florian's have opened up - one in Florence and one in Rome - neither will ever match the timeless splendour of this amazing café in Venice.

 
Venice Rialto Bridge

Venice Rialto Bridge

FOR SALE - The Rialto Bridge is one of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It is the oldest bridge across the canal, and was the dividing line for the districts of San Marco and San Polo. The present stone bridge, a single span designed by Antonio da Ponte, was finally completed in 1591. It is similar to the wooden bridge it succeeded. Two inclined ramps lead up to a central portico. On either side of the portico the covered ramps carry rows of shops. The engineering of the bridge was considered so audacious that architect Vincenzo Scamozzi predicted future ruin. The bridge has defied its critics to become one of the architectural icons of Venice.

 
Venice The Fish Market

Venice The Fish Market

FOR SALE - Venice's fish market was built in 1917. This part might be the least prettified part of Venice, but it is all the more beautiful for it, as is the fact that the fish comes to market by boat and leaves in the shopping bags of Venetian grannies. The red draped blinds make this a favourite subject for artists.

 
Ventnor - The Sunshine coast

Ventnor - The Sunshine coast

FOR SALE - Ventnor is a seaside resort established in the Victorian era on the south coast of the Isle of Wight, England. It lies underneath St Boniface Down (which, at 241 metres (791 feet), is the highest point on the Isle of Wight), and is built on steep slopes and cliffs leading down to the sea. The higher part is referred to as Upper Ventnor (although officially it is Lowtherville); the lower part, where most of the amenities are located, being known as Ventnor. Ventnor is sometimes understood as including the coastal villages of St. Lawrence to one side and Bonchurch to the other. The sheltered location on the cliff of the Island's south coast means the area experiences a microclimate with more sunny days than much of the British Isles, and fewer frosts. This has allowed many species of subtropical plant to be successfully planted and maintained. Ventnor Botanic Garden is particularly notable.

 
Wanderer Class Regatta

Wanderer Class Regatta

SOLD - The Wanderer is a 14 foot (4.3 metres = 14.1 feet) Fibreglass hull Bermuda rigged sailing dinghy designed by Ian Proctor. One of the main objectives of the design was to produce a robust safe and versatile dinghy that could be used for knockabout day sailing and cruising as well as racing, but was light enough to be handled ashore. The Wanderer has Main and Jib sails it can also be fitted with a Spinnaker. Reefing of the main sail is by slab reefing, the jib can also be fitted with roller furling system. The boat has high intrinsic stability, and the normal wooden centreplate can be replaced with an 85 pound steel centre board which makes it even harder to capsize. The relatively light weight of the boat contributes to its ease of launching and recovery. The design allows for fitting of an outboard motor of up to 3.3 hp. There is very ample storage which includes a waterproof locker for storage of the outboard motor when not in use. On the water the boat can be recognised by its Sail logo of a white W in a blue circular background. Over 1600 boats have been produced.

The castle is notable for its long association with the English and later British royal family and also for its architecture.

Since the time of Henry I, it has been used by succeeding monarchs and is the longest-occupied palace in Europe. Originally designed to protect Norman dominance around the outskirts of London, and to oversee a strategically important part of the River Thames, Windsor Castle was built as a motte and bailey, with three wards surrounding a central mound and gradually replaced with stone fortifications.

 
Wrexham Tin Tabernacle

Wrexham Tin Tabernacle

SOLD - A tin tabernacle is a type of prefabricated ecclesiastical building made from corrugated galvanised iron. They were developed in the mid 19th century initially in Great Britain. Corrugated iron was first used for roofing in London in 1829 by Henry Robinson Palmer and the patent sold to Richard Walker who advertised "portable buildings for export" in 1832. The technology for producing the corrugated sheets improved and to prevent corrosion the sheets were galvanised with a coating of zinc, a process developed by Stanislas Sorel in Paris in the 1830s. After 1850, many types of prefabricated buildings were produced, including churches, chapels and mission halls. Now disused, Abenbury Church stands in an isolated position close to Plas Issa Farm on the Cefn Park estate.

 
Yarmouth - Moorings on the Yar

Yarmouth - Moorings on the Yar

FOR SALE - The River Yar on the Isle of Wight, England, rises near the beach at Freshwater Bay, on the south coast of the island and flows only a few miles north to Yarmouth, on the north coast, where it meets the Solent. Most of the river is a tidal estuary. Its headwaters have been truncated by erosion of the south coast. In the summer it is a popular moring place for yachts. It is also part of the Isle of Wight’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which stretches from Afton Marsh Local Nature Reserve to Yarmouth. The estuary consists of a number of important habitats, including saltmarsh, reedbeds, mud flats and sand dunes, and these in turn host a rich abundance of wildlife, particularly over-wintering wildfowl and waders.
