About Myself

Why Avebury?:

This section came with the template, so I had a choice of omitting it or writing a little something. You can skip this section if you wish with one click of a mouse button.

I've lived in Swindon for many years, but had been too busy to visit the wonderful historical sites spread across the country. However, in 2012 I made the effort and visited Salisbury Cathedral, Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury, St. Edmundsbury Cathedral, Ely Cathedral, Stonehenge, and Avebury.

Avebury is on my doorstep, and I was amazed with the engineering of these ancient people, so decided to create this website as an appetizer for more people to come and visit the village, or for those that are unable to come, to view more photographs on my website than shown by others. I've not gone into detailed written descriptions because there's sufficient information available if you look out for it. I provide only generally known local snippets of information and some personal experiences from visiting the village on many occasions.

Where I'm going:

I've tailored this template, including the software features, photographs and (purchased) a royalty free music selection from a company on the web, to hopefully show you a good look around Avebury with accompanying light music. You can turn off the music if it's not to your taste.

This site development has been an enjoyable learning experience for me, and well worth my own investment. It's still under construction and some features are not fully utilized at this time. When I have completed the required functions for the site, I plan to research another interesting place in the not too distant future.

This website is a hobby, I have other websites such as this URL slideshow below. This older website uses JavaScript and is about nine years old, and no way as splendid as this template design. However, if you would like a brief look around Cambridge in 30 minutes, then these slides show you the way. There's no accompanying music this time, and you travel by my feet from the outskirts on Elizabeth Way road (2.4 kilometres, 1.5 miles) to the centre and back again:

I spend time in this City, so take this route for exercise on occasional Saturday mornings. Very little has changed on this particular route in many years.

I also have a site running for 14 minutes which starts in Switzerland and ends in Greece. This site was set up several years before the Cambridge one:

If anyone is interested in the medieval architecture of Ely Cathedral, I have a series of photographs:

I have the following video links to the other Cathedrals and Abbey that I visited in 2012. They are very entertaining:
