I thought a really good job was done, and in the most trying of circumstances. I was especially struck by Jan Mihell’s piece on the hazards of mooring large vessels to the load-bearing structures of riverside pubs in the 18th Century.
Well done with the e-journal. Very interesting articles.
Thank you for all your hard work. The e-journal is much appreciated and very professionally done.
An excellent read.
Super newsletter. I found all the articles informative.
This is great.
It looks splendid.
