Yorkshire day, true to form, has been wet.  Very wet. The river is not in spate,but is flowing strongly under the west arch of New Inn bridge.  As a consequence fishing on the river should be very rewarding tomorrow between the showers.

We put 100 rainbow trout into the Tarn last evening and received a good soaking for our efforts.  All fish seemed highly impressed with their new habitat and one individual got so exited that it left the water turned a victory roll and returned to the depths.

I was delighted and surprised today to receive in the post a packet of photographs sent by a former pupil at Horton school who must read the gibberish that I post here because I mentioned last week setting up an exhibition to mark the closure of Horton school.  I shall of course write and thank you, but the images of the school in the early 20th Century complement other material that has come to light recently.  I spent several hours  over the weekend cataloging a couple of hundred items.  These will now be digitised and that which is not restricted by data protection legislation will soon appear on dalescommunityarchives.org.uk.
