7th May 2011
I have been intending to produce a major update of the web site, with a second newsletter, following a holiday in Ireland looking at Hingston locations and records. Unfortunately, having updated a lot of pages I had a disk crash and lost many of my updates before they were uploaded. I have not had time to recreate the pages but hope to do so soon.
I have also lost at the same time a number of emails. If anyone has sent me a message to which I have not replied, or if I have not incorporated your information in these pages, please contact me again. I apologise for the problems.
