Interesting Items

This area of the site is called "Interesting" because we hope you'll find the motley collection of items gathered here just that.

The forthcoming celebrations, for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year, prompted a look at past similar ones. The first one featured is the Coronation of George V.

The March Fountain was also part of March's celebrations for the coronation of George V. It has a plaque bearing the date of 22nd June 1911. So we'll have a little look at the fountain for our second item.

We would like to add more memorable "occasions" in March and the surrounding area. If you have any you would like to see here, email me text and pictures and I'll do my best to add it here.
