I grew up in Bingley, Middlesbrough and Morecambe, went to Leeds University and I live in Lancaster.

This site includes material from previous websites, family information and things that I want to keep on it. I made the 'website' using Blogger, adapting the Template Style 'Simple' by Josh Peterson. It started as an exercise in making a standard website for free i.e. without paying for web space. It isn't quite free as I pay about £10 a year for the jalodrome.co.uk domain name.

Many of the photographs on the website are scans of old, small photographs, slides or newspaper cuttings. As such, the quality is variable.
