Main interest is hill walking, trig pointing and benchmarking. It's becoming (become?) all-consuming!
Family history research was one of my main interests, but re-location in 1997 took me away from my main primary source - Chichester Record Office, and despite still researching, it's been taking an ever decreasing amount of my time and is definitely on the back-burner at present. I've currently researched back 12 generations to the early 1600's and have produced hard copy of all my research in seven volumes which includes photographs, civil and parish records, wills, birth announcement cards, wedding invites and a whole plethora of interesting bits and pieces (interesting being a subjective word of course).
Golly brooches has been an on-going interest since I was knee high to the proverbial... but a chance find in a Farnham junk shop in Jul 98 re-kindled that interest. From a simple collection of 28 brooches I've now got around 2000. At the moment brooches are displayed on 12 Robertson's Golly Scrolls, in 3 Robertson's Golly Brooch Boxes and in 20 'Safe' (as in Safe albums) display cases. To see some of my Golly brooch collection click here. As well as Golly badges I collect other metal enamel badges, mainly Pontins, Corgi Model Club, Rupert & Golly & Thunderbirds; there are links to some of these above.
Another of my interests is JRR Tolkien, hence the link above to my Tolkien webpage from which there's a link to the official Tolkien website - definitely worth a visit and you'll also find details there for joining the Society.
