Summary of Content

These pages will eventually contain photographs of my various trips to Darlington. I've stacks of photographs of this part of the land. I almost lived here (and often regretted not having done so). Scanning is now the order of the day as they were mainly from my 'pre-digital' days. Also included are various links to Darlington related web sites that I have found useful over the years.
Having just made a visit ( after some considerable length of time ) I am exceptionally impressed with the development to the town centre. There are now a range of shops to equal most any place 'down south'. The centre is catering more for pedestrians and is bright and roomy. An absolute pleasure to visit. There are plenty of car parks close to the shops.   05/07
