The Peculiar Photographic Revelations of a Victorian Eccentric.


Step back into a very unconventional nineteenth century, with tales of the bizarre world of Victorian eccentric, and photographer, Samuel Heracles Gascoigne-Simpson.

The artist's grandson, Nick Simpson,  invites you to revel in the outlandish splendour of a true Victorian eccentric's photographic imagination . Steam powered stories take you on a journey of fantastic inventions, nurdling, nadgering, grebes, pork pies and the infamous Bumforth Manor soirees.

"Not to be missed…" Rutland Goat Botherers Journal.

"A great day out for all fans of nadgering..." Grantham Worm Farmer's Association

Nick Simpson is a British award-winning photographer, creative story teller, and custodian of Samuel Heracles Gascoigne Simpson’s secrets.
