An exhibition at the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn by a local amateur photographer has had to be extended due to its huge popularity with local people.

The photography exhibition by Roy Gough from Runcorn, was originally due to finish on 29 November but will now run until Sunday 12 January 2020.

Roy acquired his first camera in 1947, aged eleven. As his passion for photography grew, he set up his own dark room to develop films and print pictures.

Since then he’s taken thousands of photographs, capturing images of Runcorn and beyond.  This exhibition reflects his particular interest in railways, buses, canals and street photography.

Roy has always enjoyed photographing people, at work and going about their everyday lives. Over the last seventy years, his photographs have reflected the changes in our town and society as a whole. His photographs feature in many books on local history and he is a social historian, as well as a keen amateur photographer.

Roy is donating all proceeds from the sale of his pictures to Macmillan Nurses.

The Brindley Gallery is free to visit and is open Monday – Friday, 10am – 5pm.
