Reveley Lodge has been linked with the art world for many years and past owner Albert Chewett, a painter, was a pupil of Hubert von Herkomer. The conversion of the old carriage house in our Victorian stables was made possible through a generous private donation and a grant from Hertsmere’s Community Infrastructure Fund.

Ashley Vincent: Until 23 December 2022
We are delighted to welcome photographer Ashley Vincent who has travelled the world capturing a wide variety animals both in their natural habitats as well as at rescue centres, wildlife parks and zoos in Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo, Kenya, South Africa, Madagascar, and the UK. He has now returned to his home-town of Canons Park and exhibits around the UK.
Ashley’s career as a professional photographer began in 2010 while living in Thailand where, together with is wife, they managed their own gallery at Thailand’s largest wild animal park, Khao Kheow Open Zoo (KKOZ), where for three years he was the resident photographer.
“Having special access to work in close quarters with so many animals at KKOZ was a truly wonderful experience, and the greatest privilege of all was working with their clouded leopard conservation programme. KKOZ’s clouded leopards were featured in episode two of the BBC One series ‘Ingenious Animals’.”
Ashley’s photograph – titled ‘The Explosion’ – of an Indochinese tigress shaking herself off after a dip in her pool, was awarded the Grand Prize of the 2012 National Geographic Photo Contest, a year in which more than 22,000 images were entered from 150 countries.
The Indochinese tiger—found in parts of Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia—is one of six tiger subspecies, all of which are endangered or critically endangered. It’s estimated that only about 350 Indochinese tigers exist in the wild.
