he first an­tique that I pur­chased was a print of a line en­grav­ing by J & F Har­wood, show­ing Lodore Falls, Cum­ber­land, from 1842. It was bought from a gift shop in Bor­row­dale dur­ing a fam­ily hol­i­day in the Lake Dis­trict when I was 15, for just £10.

I loved the in­tri­cate de­tail and it has trav­elled ev­ery­where with me

Ts­ince. To­day I would have to spend about £20 for the print. Value isn’t im­por­tant to me, it’s the fact that it re­minds me of happy hol­i­days and started an in­ter­est in en­grav­ings, which then led on to a ca­reer in the an­tiques world.
