The Parish of Arrington: Local History

Between 1999 and 2006 I set up and maintained a number of local history websites for Arrington, Croydon (Speculum Gregis 1843), Orwell and Wimpole - four ancient parishes located in South Cambridgeshire, some seven miles west of the university city of Cambridge. For various reasons (mainly employment) the sites gradually died and the domains eventually lapsed. Seven years on and I have been challenged to get the information back out   online. Retirement and the discovery of an old pre-USB back-up disc have negated my long (and completely plausible) list of excuses - so here once again are the original Arrington web pages, frozen in all their pre-2006 pre-broadband glory! Enjoy the minimal graphics, iffy designs, dodgy navigation and the largely pre-CSS coding.

[7 September 2013] Project started. Hosting and domain purchased.
[9 September 2013]: Search facility and site blog added.
[September 2013]: The first pass will be to rebuild as an .asp site (all individual page suffixes will be changing from .htm to .asp) and I will also be adding a number of new introductory pages (of which this is one). Once I have a usable and stable site I will go through and update or delete broken and outdated links.
