The town where I live is 400 years old today. Well, that’s not specifically true, it was here before then but on the 25th March 1613 it received it’s Royal Charter from King James I.

Yesterday myself and Stephen took a cold walk up Scrabo Hill overlooking the town. A strange walk as half of the hill was clear of snow and the other half was covered in deepish drifts. Here are the usual photos from the walk.
