The ruins of St Catherine's Chapel, Lydiate, Merseyside (Triptych)

St Catherine's Chapel is located in Lydiate, Merseyside and is known locally as Lydiate Abbey. It was built around 1500 for the private worship of the Ireland family, who held the Lydiate lordship from 1410–1673. Its use as a private chapel ceased in the 1550s, following Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monasteries, though the small cemetery on the same grounds was still in use until the latter 19th century. Local legend has it that you can hear the cries of children and babies that were sacrificed on these grounds and that there is a lost priest tunnel that leads from the chapel to the nearby ruins of Lydiate Hall. Ghosts of a monk and pilots from a WW2 plane crash have apparently been seen and heard walking the grounds. I have visited this site on many occasions and never seen or heard anything, although it does have a rather eerie feeling about the place.

Our images are printed using premium K3 print technology on Hahnemühle Fine Art Torchon matt photographic paper. The special feature of the light white paper (285 g/m²) is its material: 100% alpha-cellulose defines the characteristically coarse texture. It gives your image a timeless, true-to-the-original charisma with a 3D effect. The hand-made style paper is highly water resistant and the use of premium K3 Epson prints ensures luminous colours and deep blacks for at least 100 years.

Textile print on stretcher frame – a fabric print using modern technology

Your image will be printed on fabric in razor-sharp quality and with brilliant colours and with its subtly textured surface; it transforms any photo into a unique gallery work that is full of life. During the thermal sublimation process, the colours are completely evaporated into the material. The resolution of up to 720 dpi and the enlarged CMYK colour spectrum allows accurate colour reproduction with clear contours. We only use textiles that are free of harmful substances and that have been awarded the internationally recognised Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. Your image is mounted on the solid wood stretcher frame in its true form using only, high quality stretcher frames made of solid wood. The spruce wood comes from German suppliers and is sourced from sustainable forests. To give the stretcher frames permanent protection from losing shape, we triple reinforce the corners under the textile print using metal braces. When mounting on the stretcher frame we avoid using wedges – the frame is so stable that you won't need to loosen or tighten it at a later stage and it will arrive ready to hang.
