At long last some 'new' material. I say new, but I actually did this walk back in 2015. It's from Shalford to Artington in Surrey.
The Ordnance Survey in their wisdom have decided to make it very difficult and expensive for hobbyist webmasters to access and use the 1:50000 and 1:25000 mappings. I am therefore in the process of removing the OS maps from this site.
Where appropriate I'm replacing them with Google Maps or with ones based on the 1:250000 mapping (which is still publicly available). In what universe driving traffic to your larger and better funded competitor make sense, I'm not sure. Sometimes Government 'thinking' is difficult to decern.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
It's been a long time since the last update. I've been heavily involved in another project, and I'm afraid that Strolling Guides has had to take a back seat.
I've got a bit more time now, and hope to be able to post some stuff soon. However, first I've got to give the code a spring-clean and most of the changes will be under the hood at first.
That said, what with the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and the fact that I'm not getting any younger, new content is only going to appear infrequently.
New for this month, the Llangollen Railway in Clwyd, North Wales.
Happy New Year again everyone! I'm back having spent most of last year scanning my old negatives and making them up into photobooks.
Happy New Year everyone! First up this year an article on the Bala Lake Railway (Rheilffordd Llyn Tegid) in Gwynedd, North Wales
Two new gazetteer articles this month, both on the Isle of Wight.
Merry Christmas everyone!
New for this month the Old Town Hall at Newton on the Isle of Wight, and some photos of the wonderfully peaceful Newton Quay
New this month a much expanded article on the Needles Old and New Batteries including the High Down Rocket Test Site.
Nothing new for this month I'm afraid.
A real castle and a couple that aren't to start this month off:
Two short articles this month:
Also some photos from last year's Isle of Wight Classic Busses, Beer & Walks Festival.
Sorry. Got tied up in sorting out the last of the negatives, so nothing new this month.
