After the various problems of the past year (see the next paragraph) it is nice to have some good news for a change. I was recently elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, specifically in recognition of this website.
I have been using this section of the site to give updates on progress in the final restoration of the site after it was hacked last year. The text of all the individual entries on the site is now fully revised and I hope that I have dealt with the numerous minor corruptions that crept in. That includes the internal links which had been broken but are now all reinstated (and tested!). There remain the photographs which I decided to leave until the text was fully back. The hack particularly affected them, often in a completely random way. Some were unaffected, others became attached to a completely different church whilst others vanished completely. Luckily I still have access to everything, whether my own or taken by others and as a first step I have deleted all the photographs that had become attached to the wrong church. That means that every photograph is (or should be) attached to the correct church. However, there are still lots of references, mainly acknowledgements, to photographs that are not there. I shall now be starting to put these back onto the site; it’s hard to say how long this will all take but I hope it will not be as long as the revision of the text.
As so often I end with a request. As I have already implied, reinstating links and odd glitches of spelling and punctuation is not very stimulating so I may have missed the odd one. If you spot any please let me know.
