Lord and Lady Edward Manners would like to thank all the photographers for their essential and beautiful contribution to this site.
Christine Gregory is a writer, photographer and painter. Having taught social and political studies in adult and community education for over twenty years, she went on to teach radio skills and print journalism in further education. She has made community-based radio programmes for BBC Radio Sheffield and features for BBC Radio 4, although now she concentrates full time on writing, painting and photography.
She has lived in the Derbyshire Dales of the Peak District for over thirty years. Here she has been following, studying and photographing wildlife, in particular brown hares, and water voles. She has produced books on both these species, a book on the social and natural history of a Peak District river and most recently a farming history based on farmers’ accounts. These books emanate from her lifelong love of the countryside and a deep personal concern wildlife and the environment.
