Photographer to the Tsar: Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii

October 1st - 31st 2021

The photographs of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) offer a vivid portrait of a lost world - the Russian Empire on the eve of World War I and the coming revolution. His subjects ranged from the medieval churches and monasteries of old Russia, to the railroads and factories of an emerging industrial power, to the daily life and work of Russia’s diverse population.

This exhibition was originally produced and displayed in The Mill in 2013.

The town of Gatehouse of Fleet was built from scratch in the mid eighteenth century as a planned industrial town. It grew out of great changes in society at the time - a product of the industrial revolution. This exhibition tells its story.



Exhibition : Follow the Fleet

All Season

The Fleet Valley is a designated National Scenic Area. It contains a wide variety of landscape and wildlife. This exhibition follows the river as it flows from the high hills and wild moorland at the head of the valley between the narrow wooded slopes of the middle section of the valley with its patchwork of small fields and woodlands to the open estuary landscape where the river flows into the bay. A set of trail guides available from the Mill complements the exhibition.
