>>Hello Tony What ever are they doing now to that lovely place now. I was near the Mayo monument to see the Queen when she came to open what was then Calder Hall. I also went to the pictures for the first time to see a film called John and Julie. The cinema is now the vet's but I can remember those doors 60+ years later. Bracing ourselves for Doris but hoping she'll miss out Mid Wales. Michael

Disclaimer - 'THE WEATHER' is only my personal opinion - if you come to the Lakes and get sunburnt (or soaked ) - the author of this page bears absolutely no responsibility. You are welcome to copy any of these pictures for your own use, but please credit the photographer, Tony Richards, or add a link to these pages. Most pictures taken with a Panasonic Lumix TZ60. Occasionally with my trusty Nikon D50 with a Tamron AF18 - 200mm macro zoom lens, which feels like a tank compared with the Lumix!.
