THE Imperial War Museum Duxford is playing host to a new exhibition of photography and poems by a group of disabled artists.
Their Finest Hours depicts sites that once had some military significance and shows their contribution to the war effort.
The locations, now mostly in a state of decay, include the disused control tower at the former RAF station at Wheaton, and a pill box at Market Drayton on the Shropshire Union Canal.
The exhibition has been put together by the Talking Pictures Group of disabled artists; photographs by Clifford Morris will be combined with poems by Semba Jallow-Rutherford.

Mr Morris said: "The exhibition was four years in the making and we see the rewards in being able to display the work in such an acclaimed national museum.
"We hope very much that visitors will appreciate the unusual approach to our military heritage that we have employed in creating the exhibition."
