    David Hall's Site Kaput

    Sad to see that David Hall has decided to close down his Lake District Walks site. A great shame as this was my first port of call for reminders of the views of my favorite place and also full of useful information. Will also miss David's dry wit. Shame he could not have left an unsupported archive of some sort.

    Problem is, that sort of site - especially if popular! - ends up using quite a bit of bandwidth so $$$$ to maintain it. With luck some of it will have survived in the various web archives.

    Sean McMahon's old Striding Edge site (as opposed to the new one which is still going although he doesn't appear to be walking much these days) can still be found and accessed here: http://www.stridingedge.net/old/

    It's a shame David could not have done the same. Andrew Leaney http://www.leaney.org/ or Paul Sharkey http://www.sharkeysdream.co.uk/ appear the best alternatives, although Andrew doesn't walk as much as he used to either.

    Sad to see Andrew Leaney has also closed down his site. Sean McMahon is keeping going for now but Sharkey's Dream is the best bet. Paul has now added to his site info on parking places from David Hall's old site as well, so very useful.
