This page shows several views of Pulpit Rock at Penninis Head, seen in 1988, 1991, 2000 and 2006. I guess if I keep this blog going long enough, one day this rock might not be balanced there anymore!

Mumfords Store on Hugh, St Marys, pictured here in 1989, 2000 and 2006. Doesn’t look like a lot has changed, from the outside anyway!
