St Nicholas Church, Longparish (UK) is to me the epitome of the English church. Its construction is amazing, and yet, few people I know, actually look closely at the main material used. In and around Hampshire, its fields are littered with lumps of flint, each ploughing brings more to the surface; man has put them to good use ever since the Stone Age; and here in this beautiful building, the main building material used is of course, flint.

I live in sunny Southampton,England with my wife June. Retired, I am able to dedicate more time to my hobbies and interests, which are, photography, photo manipulation, cooking, gardening, reading, sightseeing, chess, painting, a variety of music and computing.
Up until I was fifteen, I was known as Les, and as I lived in Hooton in the Wirral, I became known as Les from Hooton, hence my pseudonym “Hootonles”. Since my leaving Hooton I have preferred to use my middle Christian name John.
