For Druridge

Isabela Jedrzejczyk, John Davies

Early 1980s landscapes of a stretch of the Northumberland coastline threatened by plans to develop a nuclear power station. The plans were dropped after the Sizewell Inquiry.

Side Gallery commissioned photographers Isabella Jedrzejczyk and John Davies to document the landscape of Druridge Bay, the natural beauty of a five mile stretch of undeveloped coastline, and its hinterland. The pictures show a land of wind-swept dunes and rolling skies, miles and miles of sea and sand, water still and calm, angry waves, rocks and pools. There are the farms and hamlets and fields. The fishermen, beachcombers and day trippers.
