Most pupils who attended  Cray Valley during its 21 years and two incarnations (CVTS and CVTHS) will now be over 60 and people of our age will likely have collected art, photographs and other visually decorative elements to enhance and decorate our homes over the years. One of our problems now is probably lack of free wall space. The original Limited Edition CVTHS Montage (16 still available) is offered with dimensions of 548 x 378mm, however, following a few requests for a smaller size we are now making a further Limited edition of just 10 pieces available in the smaller size of 420 x 286mm. These prints are in a matt finish ‘C-Type’ which is photographically processed using traditional chemicals onto Fuji Crystal Archive paper and the remaining 9 copies are offered at just £28 + postage.


One of the old boys showing an interest in owning a smaller size was Graham Mitchell who has just received his copy (1/10) and writes:


“‘Very many thanks to Colin Cadle for my excellent Cray Valley School Montage which arrived today (5th January). I chose the smaller artwork to fit the space available. Ordering was very easy via the link provided and it arrived quickly in a well-packaged envelope together with the associated Limited Edition Certificate of Authenticity and hologram.

I am absolutely delighted to have this fascinating quality memento of our lovely School and my time at Cray Valley. Mine is first of the limited edition of just ten and I can thoroughly recommend getting one. The next job now for me is to attend to its framing and hanging”

About Colin Cadle

I trained as a pilot at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell flying jets and qualified as a captain on Wessex search and rescue helicopters in the Gulf. However, my professional future was destined to be firmly back on the ground... In 1976 a chance introduction to Julie Andrews' husband film producer Blake Edwards really kicked off my interest in photography after he invited me onto the set of the Peter Sellers' now classic film 'The Pink Panther Strikes Again' at Shepperton Studios. Stills photographer David Farrell further fired my enthusiasm when, during a break in filming, I was offered a short photo shoot with leading fashion model and 'Bond girl' actress Maud Adams. From that moment on art and photography have always played a major part in my life. I now live in the beautiful southwest corner of England with​ my designer and photo-stylist wife Jan. Following a serious illness in 2016 we were forced to leave commercial photography behind us but this now allows me to concentrate solely on creating art from my studio in Devon

    Thanks Colin, but some of us are still in our fifties (albeit expecting a change in the summer)! Happy new year! ….. Paul.
