The Friends have just been given this super new ariel shot of the Osborne Estate. The photograph was taken by Sam Kurtul flying in a Cessna aircraft at about 1500 feet using a zoom lens. Sam, who is a marine, travel and adventure photographer, was covering this year’s Round the Island Race and took the photo on his way back from the Needles.
Further examples of Sam’s work will be on show at his exhibition to be held at Quarrr Abbey Art Gallery starting on 18 July or by visiting his website at www.worldofthelens.co.uk.
A range of Sam’s greeting cards are available from the Friends’ Rooms which are open every
Thursday 10.00 -12.00.
Welcome to our website. The Friends of Osborne undertake an annual programme of fundraising events which are open to both members and their guests. We aim to encourage interest in Osborne House, its history, buildings, contents, grounds and gardens’
The money raised by the Friends of Osborne is used to support English Heritageʼs commitment to maintain Osborne House for the Nation. In 2015 the Friends became a registered charity. Since 1987 the Friends and its predecessor organisation have helped English Heritage with many renovation projects to the House and grounds as well as for educational projects.
