Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.
No charge for the many hours it takes building and maintaining the website but there are a number of other costs including hosting, domain registration and additional software which all add up. Just you starting your Amazon shopping by clicking on the banner above will help a lot. Thank you.
David Cummings and his wife Beryl have made a visit to what I consider to be a relatively undiscovered and magical area of the British Isles - The Northumbrian Coast. A place with wonderful castles, fishing villages, amazing scenery, vast beaches, sea birds, a young heroin and an early saint. Their visit to the Farne Islands is recorded in the August edition of Wildlife Watch. Read and enjoy.
As David Cummings says in his June 2018 edition of his Wildlife Watch "this is a great month to watch the waterfowl at Christleton Pit". But before you dash off there probably best to read all about what you may see there and view the photographs so you can identify the various birds.
