St Albans replaces Mayfair on the "Here and Now UK" edition of Monopoly. As a result a giant dog appeared outside the Town Hall today:

Cumbria 2007

Dave Rothera organised a peal at each of the Cumbrian twelves over the August Bank Holiday weekend. I find this is always an enjoyable areas of the country to visit, and it was nice to do so without the emphasis being on walking.

Fine weather, beer, food and company made it an excellent weekend, the icing on the cake being that all three peal attempts were successful:

Friday - Yorkshire S Maximus at Carlisle
Saturday - Stedman Cinques at Whitehaven
Sunday - Cambridge S Maximus at Broughton-in-Furness

New year updates

I've updated a few of the links on the left, and added a new quarter peals section. I don't keep full details of my quarter peals, so don't expect the level of detail there is in my peals section, although I might add in appropriate links to Campanophile at some point, as well as some of the compositions I have records of.
