Well spotted re Edward Gribbin and, of course, nice photos Mike. You particularly capture the trees well ;-)

After I have moved (about 280 miles closer to you guys anyway) and have settle down I would definitely like a day or two photographing some churches, cemeteries and headstones with Yourself/Paul/Spike if any or all are around.

I am getting good at trees :lol:
That would be great to meet up sometime.
It took me awhile to figure it out that his name was wrong on the memorial, but i got there in the end.

Depends on when, but I could certainly do with getting some pictures of
St. Laurence Churchyard, Morland, Westmorland at some point.....

I have had thoughts about how we can meet up. It's time to put faces to names!
I will reply fully later, Afraid doctors appointment 9.00 am!
My initial thoughts are at the museum at Carlisle? another idea - to add my personal contribution - meet at Kendal railway station, (Kendal station, not mainline Oxenholme station) where there was classic photo of the Border volunteers returning from the Boer War can I then show you show you the locations, artefacts etc in the town!
If anyone is coming down individually my number is 01539 726430 , and I am more than happy to "point you in the right direction" or even personal (free!)tour if I'm available!
Cheers Paul

As I won't be moving until the end of August (fingers crossed) and I'll need some time to get sorted with work and the house etc., which could take a few weeks, I won't be able to visit until after the summer. I don't mind what time of year it is but the warmer weather is a little more advantageous, especially for photography and capturing the cemeteries when there is more colour.

Definitely would be great to meet up though as I have only met Spike once and that was a few years ago now.

I like the idea of Kendal Railway Station but also the museum simply because of the move to the new block and I'd like to see that too.

Maybe a new thread in "the lounge" to discuss this when closer to the time would be a good idea to confirm dates and availability of everyone :-)
