His collection, primarily featuring Dunwoody’s shots of Northumberland, but also showcasing some of his other travel work over the last few years, is on show at the Rocking Horse Café & Gallery, at Rock Midstead Farm. He said: “I took the pictures from the air and it was a truly memorable trip – flying over the castles, as well as towns like Alnwick and Berwick.

“Northumberland is a cracking county and a really great place, with beautiful scenery.”
