Its hotels and restaurants offer high-quality hospitality for all visitors and one has recently staked a claim to have more than types of champagne available. A gateway to the beauties of the Peak Distirct National Park, Bollington’s remnants of industrial history, the splendid Adelphi and Clarence Mills, stand on the banks of the Macclesfield Canal, reminders of the town’s heyday for the cotton industry.

Long Distance Walks in South Wales. The following details are taken partly from a leaflet ‘Long Distance Walks in South Wales’ which used to be available in local tourist offices.
It can be walked in a day or in shorter lengths from Bryngarw Country park or one of the two car parks provided along the route. Superb panoramas of the Valleys and the Vale of Glamorgan can be obtained throughout the walk and on clear days views of the Devon and Somerset hills can be enjoyed. Fine wooded landscapes can be seen near Coytrahen and Blackmill. There is a wide variety of historical and archaeological interest along the route including the bronze Age burial mounds on Mynydd-y-Gaer, and the old railway viaduct at Blackmill dating back to Most of the walk is on open hilltops, but it drops through the forestry to cross the Ely Valley and rise again to the cobbled streets of the mediaeval hill town of Llantrisant.
Continuing eastwards it passes Caerau iron age hill fort and the valley of the Nant Myddlyn before climbing to ft m at Garth Hill.

Lindow Common Lindow Moss is a peat bog in Lindow, an area of Wilmslow, Cheshire, which has been used as common land since the medieval period. It formed after the last ice age , one of many such peat bogs in north-east Cheshire and the Mersey basin that formed in hollows caused by melting ice. It is a dangerous place; an 18th-century writer recorded people drowning there.
For centuries the peat from the bog was used as fuel, and it continued to be extracted until the s, by which time the process had been mechanised. Lowland raised mires occur mainly in northern England and extend south to the Midlands.

Oklahoma State Fair Speedway. They date their beginning to when the Slow Pokes car club built a drag strip in Ardmore. However, that drag strip was a few miles southeast of Ardmore in Lake Murray State Park see below , not in the present location of the Ardmore Dragway a mile south of Springer and nine miles north of Ardmore. So we’re talking about two different drag strips in different locations.
As to Ardmore Dragway being the oldest continually-run drag strip in America, that claim doesn’t hold water either. Several continually-run drag strips that are still in operation predate Ardmore, even if we were to use as the strip’s bench mark date which is incorrect. I did a thorough search of the Ardmore Daily Ardmoreite newspaper to try to find out when the old airport one mile south of Springer the present location of Ardmore Dragway was first used. The first time that its use as a drag strip as reported in the local newspaper was on June 17, “Drag races set at Springer today,” Ardmore Daily Ardmorite, June 17,
Adapting reading or learning material If you require written words to be modified, such as making text bigger, modifying the font colour, or altering line spacing and paragraphs, the RNIB have provided information on how to do this for computerised documents. This condition may be the result of a visual perceptual difficulty or a learning disability such as dyslexia.
The line-finder is simply placed upon the page to be read to mask out unwanted text. This is particularly useful if you have dyslexia.
This website is an unnofficial guide to the Thames Path, a National Trail footpath running for miles along the banks of the river Thames. Starting at the Thames Flood Barrier at Woolwich in South East London it runs along the banks of the Thames to Kemble in Gloucestershire.
Look out for a public footpath sign on the left and turn on to a farm road. Just before this road turns sharply left take the public footpath that forks off to the right and goes uphill through a wood. Cross another stile, follow the path across open hillside, then cross yet another stile and turn left on to the road. Just before the road bends sharply left, cross the road, go over a stile and follow this path towards a hill. Continue to find the steps on the left leading through the ramparts of an Iron-Age fort to the summit of Mam Tor.
From here trace your steps back to the road. Follow this well-defined path along the ridge crossing five stiles. When the path is intersected by another, go right. This is Chapel Gate track, badly eroded by off-road motorbikes. Go through a kissing gate then head downhill. Go across another stile, go through a gate, then cross another stile on the left. This leads to some tumbledown buildings. Cross over a stile by the corner of one building then veer right and cross another stile on to a farm road.
Turn right then left at the junction and continue towards Barber Booth.
