When Adrian Simmonds retired and closed his shop in the Market Square, he adapted the shop to make a workshop where he painstakingly digitised his many photographs and used the shelving to display his collections of many interesting items. This is a film we made with Adrian talking about his life in retirement. Adrian died in February 2014 and his funeral service is included in the pdf.
