Update April 2024

I want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and comments last week, when I had to pull some content from ABAB.  I felt an apology was necessary, since a new article had just been published and anyone who had been notified of that would have found nothing on the end of the link.  I was particularly cross at having to take ABAB’s Places offline, too, because a lot of time is being spent developing it as a resource for people to use.

Inexplicably, everything now seems to be working as it should.  Until it doesn’t.

I’m glad to say that the ‘new’ article – The Castles of the Lune Valley – can now be read by anyone who wants to speculate about what was happening in that part of North West England almost a thousand years ago.  Or, indeed, by anyone that fancies a virtual tour through old forts in a rather picturesque valley.

I’m also delighted to say that ABAB’s Places is back online too.  Over the last few days, records on the following places of interest have been added to it:

  1. John Rylands Library
  2. Bronte School House
  3. Gawthorpe Hall
  4. Devil’s Bridge, Kirkby Lonsdale
  5. World of Beatrix Potter
  6. Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway
  7. Smardale Gill   
  8. Hardknott Roman Fort 
  9. Great Gable     
  10. Keld Chapel, Cumbria

Around 130 places to visit in North East and North West England have been added to ABAB’s Places so far.  Places of interest in Yorkshire will begin to be added soon. 😀
