Photographer's Note

This is the home of Danny and Anne Meikle in the small mining village of Coalburn in South Lanarkshire. It has won acclaim in the past as the best-decorated house in Scotland at Christmastime.

Mr Meikle's display needs to run through two industrial-sized electricity meters as it uses up too much power for a domestic meter - one year, he says, the display melted the main power cable supplying his village. He expects an electricity bill of 4,000 to 5,000 for the Christmas period. However, the couple put on this display for charity and raise well in excess of their electricity costs for charity.
