John Sutton's Chapel Lane

As webmaster I sometimes get to recieve some great 3mm pictures which it gives me great pleasure to put onto the site. In this collection of pictures from the camera of John Sutton we see a section of his layout which has been in progress for some time and which give that feeling of 'being there' which we all aim for.I hope that you enjoy them as much as I did.
