Some pictures, finally!
Thoughts on our experiences so far from John and Jane (updated 98/05/28).
I worked at the University of Lancaster with the Planetary Science Research Group. Lancaster is in N.W. England, near Colne, Lancashire, where I grew up.
Here's a more detailed, annotated, map of North-West England:
Also nearby are the lakes and mountains of the Lake District, where we spent many weekends.
We lived in the small town of Grange-over-Sands, Cumbria [excuse the tourist hype and bad spelling at this link], where we have relatives. Grange is a half-hour commute by train across Morecambe Bay from Lancaster.
