This talk is one of our highlights of 2012...

St Mary de Castro Walk Inside!

We have had some excellent publicity with the feature in the Leicester Mercury about our recent Google Business Photo tour for the St Mary de Castro church in Leicester. They need urgent repairs to the spire and it seemed an ideal opportunity to help with the new technology from Google. You can read more here – Leicester Mercury Link. If you would like to help with the Spire Appeal or make a donation please contact them on...

Time marches on

Do not panic! I have not forgotten the Church site and updates I will be starting again shortly. Due to certain changes in my work I have had to take some time out and concentrate on some other issues, but all is well and I expect to start again within the next week. The main task as before is to move everything from the old site and concentrate on the new. I went to Crete a few weeks ago, seems like months already. Managed to visit...

With the wet weather comes less chance to get and out and photograph new churches, also it is taking longer than expected to transfer information from the old site to the new site – its basically a manual process even though I have templates setup for the new site.  I also need to concentrate on the business of course and with recent developments with...

I have recently been awarded Google Business Photos status for Leicestershire & Rutland after meeting their...

Good TV at Last!

I do not watch much TV if the truth be known, firstly I do not have much time for it these days and there seems to be so much nonsense on I have given up. I do of course have a passion for documentaries and although there are perhaps one or two I may take a interest in at the moment there are three great series. Now I must admit that I have been catching up with them on BBC Iplayer and I can recommend the following; Robert...

New Website Launched

Today we have launched our new site and although it looks rather empty, have no fear it will soon be filled with our old data and new churches. The ‘interactive map’ shows all the churches we have completed and you can search for information on them and follow the link. Most of the churches are on the old site www.rutlandchurches.co.uk, but over the next few months they will be gradually moved onto this site. We will also...
