Railways, weather . . . and stuff!

Me in early May 2019: in our ‘office’ or third (very small) bedroom – the centre of operations!

This site hosts various articles, links etc., that I have developed over the years: use the menu (below) to choose the particular area / file you are interested in. Much of the information relates to the history of West Moors – when we moved here in 2007, I plunged into the background history of the railway – which then ‘crept out’ to encompass other aspects of local history. There are also a few articles regarding meteorology in history, something else that my background in operational weather forecasting has introduced me to.

I hope you find it interesting & useful . . . .


West Moors Junction station in the early 20th century, sometime in the early 1920s to judge by several clues in the photograph.
