How best to view the website

The main website pages were designed in the days of Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator web browsers and best viewed in version 8 (Internet Explorer) and above in a 1024 x 768 screen resolution. When viewing in 800 x 600 or 640 x 480 the page will enlarge creating a horizontal bar at the bottom of each webpage. It must be noted there are a great many other browsers on the market these days - Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla etc. - and though the site is tested on these platforms as much as is available the results can sometimes cause webpages to perform in different ways.

Various sections of the sites text are coded within Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), where the font size is at a default and in some situations cannot be adjusted without changing the source code.

The main horizontal navigational menu is CSS driven replacing the previous Javascript menu which did not always display as intended across the various browser platforms available now. Other aspects of the site may also vary from one browser to another depending on the device used. When viewing many of the photographs Javascript must be ebabled in order for the image to display in a new 'pop up' window. Various PDF files are also used and you may need to download Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to view them.

There is a useful Site Map located on the pull-down menu and also in the top right corner of each webpage that contains HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) enabled links.

The website does not contain any "Frame" driven webpages or advertising effects such as 'pop-up' adverts.

To the bottom of each page is an HTML 'Homepage' icon link.

Hopefully your visit to this website has been an enjoyable and enlightening one and that you visit again in the future.
