Roof Top Views


I was lucky to have been given a couple of books and a disk of photo's by Grant. When I get the disk I was more than pleased with the content and Grants pictures will be featured now and then over the few weeks. Grant tells me pictures were all taken in the 1990's. This one shows the roof top views and was taken from the Town Hall.

Hello Deslilas
That is a compliment coming from you. Your site inspired me when I first saw it way back. It planted a seed in my head which grew into an idea that I and Nancy nurtured and with the help today of Dave and Paul and our many contributors it is going from strength to strength..
