Happily, Stephen and Ann, my 'first feet' were more than willing for a walk in the park. It's always a pleasure to walk in a familiar space with lively people and we had a lot of laughs, compared notes on various features, failed to find others. It is all part of the plan to roll forward research on the King's Park, to keep up the profile, to record and observe what there is to see. Now that it has been confirmed that Scottish Ministers will, in future, take ultimate responsibility for the park, we need to be prepared!
I am working forward with various other projects at present, one for Historic Scotland and on on the history of nails (OK, so that one is not everyone's cup of tea, but all will be revealed in due course!).
And on 14th of Jan I am talking to Dunblane Civiic Society about the Stirling Castle Palace Project which I am looking forward to.
