Paul has sent over quite a few more shots from the late sixties and early seventies, including a couple of the skull in Potts Beck.
There are one or two questions in there regarding nicknames if anyone can help.
Take a look here
A couple of excellent interviews with Stuart were added to the BCA Audio Archive recently, have a listen!
I’ve made a few navigation changes and added some of Tom’s shots of last years post dinner trip into Shuttleworth.
BCA Audio Archives – for anyone who hasn’t already come across these the Audio Archives hold a list of interviews with many cavers recorded over a number of years.
Alf Lathom and Johnny Latimer have both contributed, and several Earby members names crop up in interviews with other cavers.
I’ve just changed the theme on the site, so it’ll look a bit different, to one that should work well on mobiles and tablets.
It handles images differently – which means you’ll start to see pages that look a little like this one! Unfortunately it’s not handling the front page very well, but hopefully they’ll get that sorted out!
I’ve also added a “captcha” to the login and registration process, as we’re already getting a fair bit of spam. Hopefully this will stop it, I’ve tried to use one of the less irritating ones!
A big thanks to Stuart who has been keeping me supplied with press cuttings and photo’s all week, which in turn has meant there’s already a surprising amount (to me anyway!) on the site!
Included in these is this article – which I was not expecting – from The Times in 1955 which describes the founding of the club in surprising detail.
A readable sized version is here
Keep them coming!
As well as some links to other sites I’ve added few Google maps using a bit of free software. They work OK but not sure if they spoil the look, or is it worth to have the info?
Slight problem with some of them shoving the Google copyright vertically near the right hand side but I reckon I can live with that for now!
Get your stories rolling in – the site is live!
I’ll play about with the frills and format as time allows, meanwhile if you offer anything to add content to the site it’ll be much appreciated!
