During the course of Simon’s journey around England members of the public were invited to post ideas of events and leisure pursuits that he could photograph, thereby positioning him alongside his fellow countrymen and attempting to involve the ‘English', to a certain degree, in their own representation. The ideas that were posted provide an interesting snapshot of the country in 2008 and work alongside Simon’s photographs. They illustrate what's important to people and explore their own thoughts on notions of Englishness.

The National Pinetum at Bedgebury is the finest collection of conifers on one site in the world. The collection has over 10,000 trees shrubs from five continents growing across 320 acres. Many are rare, endangered and historically important specimens. It is a beautiful and tranquil place to walk, picnic and enjoy nature away from the stresses of everyday life.

Each season offers different experiences and delights:

Summer - the many giant specimens cast deep shadows and dappled shade, creating a cool oasis in the warmth of the sun.
Autumn - the fiery leaves and brilliant berries stand out in sharp contrast to the background of rich green conifers.
Winter - a light dusting of snow or a sharp frost transforms the Pinetum into a winter wonderland. Spring - a kaleidoscope of azaleas, daffodils, rhododendrons and bluebells.
