King of the boring calendars, Kevin Beresford, has hit an all time low this year with his 2018 crane calendar….shifting just two so far.

The 65-year-old, known for his incredibly tedious calendars which include roundabouts, telephone boxes and post boxes, has outdone himself with his new creation – Crane Spotting 2018.

Divorced Kevin, from Redditch, Worcestershire, hoped his new calendar would “lift” everyone’s spirits in 2018 but it has so far proved a massive flop with just two of the £10 calendars selling so far.

Kevin, who prides himself on being one of the dullest men in Britain, is also founder of the UK Roundabout Appreciation Society and travelled around the UK looking for cranes to photograph.

He said: “I went to loads of places including Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and London.

“I just kind of wonder around and see what catches my eye. I like to take pictures of things that are everywhere but that no one else really bothers to look at.

“I like to bring these things to their attention. But this year in particular I don’t think people have really appreciated it.

“I am starting to think maybe I priced it too high.

“I think it might just be a step too far, a bit too boring.”
