Thanks Mike ,

I enjoyed it too. I like showing people "my town" even though is really is not - I'm a Yorkshireman!

Will be happy to show anyone else around.

Sorry about my disability! If you'd come 15 years ago I could have run up to the castle - not had to use a handrail. ( Mind you, you may have noticed I refused to use my walking stick, won't give in to that yet - I'm a stubborn type!)

Cheers Paul

I did work out I drove well over a quarter of million miles!

Cheers Paul

Ok, so that works out:
- if you worked a five day week
- if you had four weeks off a year (just guess work - could be more or less)
- and take into account that there would be days when you took more photos, or didn't take any at all etc.

......at 224,640 photos, almost the same amount of miles you drove! Impressive :|o

Always happy to show anyone around Kendal. Unfortunately I have no transport, but my house is VERY easy to find from the M6

Sorry to hear that Mike. I know how that feels and it's not a great feeling, especially when you put a lot of effort into it. What happened? Did you not copy them over to the computer before deleting them on the camera? :-\

Mike, I know you are in the caravan but hope you get this message.
Obviously we should meet earlier in the day, in Kendal, but I have arranged for you to have the Border Regiment/ 55th Westmorland Regiment colours cabinet to be opened for you at the church 2.30pm.
A bit too short notice for me to get you a Mayor's Parlour visit. Maybe save that next " treat" for your next visit, an d bring family if interested?

Once again I am indebted to Paul for another fantastic day touring around (his patch) Kendal. Cheers Paul I really enjoyed it and the family say a big HI, they were glad to finally meet you after all this time.
Say a big thanks to Mike for allowing me to see the flags it made my holiday I can tell you, to see the flag of the dragon was a fantastic thrill and an honour thank you very much it is something I am never going to forget.

Cheers Mike.

Mike . How about posting your images of the standards in the Kendal parish church - especially the China dragon one and the "tatty" WW1 battle flag?
Regards Paul
