Faslane Peace Camp
Its been 30 years since the start of Faslane Peace Camp in protest against the nuclear submarines based on the river Clyde. Locally there’s a split in opinion as they hire a lot of people and bring money to the region but at the same time it’s as if we don’t want to really think that these are nuclear weapons on our doorstep. So, I’m hoping it won’t be another 30 years and maybe a new government would spend the billions on say renewable energy to truly benefit the local and global economy.

The whippet/collie brothers Sancho and Harvey. Although they are brothers Sancho is half the size of his brother, the smallest pup of the pack.

With most of the electricity from solar panels, all the heating comes from small stoves so a lot of chopping and sawing wood is necessary.
This bike is used for emergencies if the batteries from the solar panels runs out. It takes roughly one hour of cycling to get half an hour of electricity.
There’s s a small shelf to put your cup of tea while you cycle and socks/gloves for your hands for when its cold.
