"Picture taken by doting mother at the bottom of the Drive at St Columba’s.
Mike has always been at the cutting edge of fashion, as evidenced in this picture."


Well, what a discovery ! On Gallery Page 203 you will find photos taken by
Dr Mike Goodstadt, who came over to the UK from Toronto in October 2004.
He spent a couple of weeks with his brother Paul. They took time out to visit St Boswell's
and Dryburgh, meeting up with John Martin and his wife, who now own 'the farm'.

" This picture was taken near Bishops’ Waltham.  My (rapidly disappearing)
memory seems to remember “Stephen Castle Down” or some such thing. "

(Maurice Billingsley confirms this : Stephen's Castle Down is right.
King S had a fort there against Maud during their civil war, as in Bro Cadfael).

(L-R) : Mike Byrne, Sean Murphy, Kevin Gregson and Simon Blandford






With many thanks to Michael for this further set of photos.
