website statistics

Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.

Please Support the Christleton Website Project

No charge for the many hours it takes building and maintaining the website but there are a number of other costs including hosting, domain registration and additional software which all add up. Just you starting your Amazon shopping by clicking on the button below will help a lot. Thank you. And if you are already doing this a very big thank you.


Big Thank You to Amazon Shoppers

I would like to give a very big thank you to all you people who clicked on the Amazon Shopping Button which appears on many pages of the Christleton website. Just by using that link you raised about 26 pounds during December, the biggest monthly figure ever. This money has been used to go towards an annual sum of 182.72 pounds I have just paid to Easyspace to host the website. There are two other yearly bills for Domain Registration and a SSL Certificate. Please, please could more of you use this link to shop on Amazon. Please tell your friends. You could copy the link and save it as a bookmark in your browser so you do not need to return to the Christleton website each time you wish to make a purchase. Thank you.


Christleton in the Past

Starting in the new Christleton 4 section of the webiste David Cummings will contribute each month photographic files from the Village Archives about a particular aspect of Village Life. January features "Horses" with photographic contributions mainly from Ernest Hall, Reg Morgan and David himself. Ernest Hall's contribution of images of the Littleton Point to Point Races and Romany Families in the Village are particularly fine, and illustrate life in the 1960's and 70's. He was one of the first people in the village to use Kodachrome colour slide film, and as they were rarely viewed they are still in immaculate condition.

Christleton 4 Now Online

The Christleton Website starts 2021 with a brand new section - Christleton 4. It would have been nice to have carried on expanding Christleton 3 which covers five years from 2016 to 2020 but problems were starting to arise. No shortage of space on the server but whenever I added new pages which was every month this changed the structure of the website which meant that several thousand files had to be again uploaded. This all takes time and does not always go to plan. So as our most loyal and regular contributor, David Cummings, is ready to enlighten us with his unbelieveable treasure trove of knowledge about our village of Christleton plus his infectious interest in local wildlife in all its forms, Christleton 4 All Seasons, is born.


The Last One and the First One

The last Wildlife Watch for 2020 is now online. In it David Cummings looks at the plants, butterflies and birds that can be seen in St. James' churchyard. It is also the first Wildlife Watch where I have been able to include a video title at the top of the page. All twelve artticles are avaialble but to go to the December one click the button below.
