The Jubilee beacon, lit at 21.45 on the 2nd June 2022.
Celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the Queen's coronation started in the Schoolroom with some excellent food, good company and an unforgettable rendition of 'Sweet Caroline'.
Later on, Jason and Eric provided very welcome Land Rover assistance up to the beacon. Paul played 'Majesty' for us before the debris of Storm Arwen and Pat's sitting room burst into flames in what was widely applauded as being unquestionably the "best beacon in Cumbria".
The Ancient Village of Torver lies in a beautiful wooded valley close to Coniston Water at the southern end of the Lake District National Park.
The name Torver (originally Thoruergh) owes its origins to the Norwegian Viking settlements of the eighth century onwards. 'Thor' and 'Ergh' mean the hill-pasture belonging to Thor(sten)
(and other old stuff)

To dump poo with impoonity.

Great philosophical thought experiments:
1. If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one around to hear it, does it make a sound?
2. If a man in the forest speaks and there are no women around to hear it, is he still wrong?
