Rowden Atelier – A workshop tour

The weather has been absolutely amazing here in sunny Devon. So I thought I would whizz the camera around and get a good view of Rowden and the surrounding area. The lake is home to a family of Canada geese each summer, two parents and 5 goslings, and adds to the peace and tranquility after a hard days work in the workshop.

The atmosphere is great, students are making the most of the sunshine by getting outside and doing a bit of routing or marking up in the sun but also taking the time to relax along the coastlines when they get the chance. Surfing is a big thumbs up around here, visiting nearby beaches such as Westward Ho! and Widemouth Bay in the mornings and evenings.
