About me

Gender Male
Location Lakeland, United Kingdom
Introduction Following a rather dizzy hippy life in Northumberland in the 60s when I somehow got a degree in Fine Art I embarked on a career in the civil service which soon died a natural death. After a further period as a restaurateur I went to Lancaster and got a degree in Independent Studies followed by a Master's Degree in Historical Research. Now retired I do what interests me - history! And that means, among other things, war memorials - an excuse to explore the wonderful county of Cumbria; its towns, villages & churches & people.
Interests History, Churches, People, Rupert Bear, The Arts, writing, charity shops, travelling, but most of all, Friends & family.
Favorite Movies A Month in the Country, War & Peace, All Quiet, One of the Missing, The Duellists, Saturday Night & Sunday Morning, Elena Undone.
Favorite Music English
Favorite Books Seven Pillars of Wisdom & hundreds of others. Can't stop buying them
