  1. Judy,
    Thank you for the link to the Borthwick! I know about it, but I'd never thought to check for a webpage -- duh...! With just one quick look, I see that it's going to help with my current problems in Weaverthorpe/Helperthorpe and all the jurisdictions. Who knows what else I'll find!

  2. I'm delighted to hear that you found the link helpful. I have never been to the Borthwick but hope to get there on a future trip to the UK.
