About the “Around-England” family of sites – including legal stuff


Hello, I am David Murray, a retired international management consultant now the owner and web-master of the “Around-England” family of web sites. The original “Around-England” site was launched in 2008 as an offshoot from the online bookshop then run by my wife and myself and now in a somewhat different form at BrunleaBooks.co.uk.

“Around-England” is now at the heart of a group of travel-related sites. The ultimate intention of the site is to introduce and describe great places to visit around the country. Three years ago I returned to live in Cumbria, at first in Appleby in Westmorland, now in Kirkby Stephen. In the short to medium term there is and will be an admitted heavy bias to the North of England. The Lake District has had most attention so far along with some coverage of the Yorkshire Dales. The other two northern national parks will follow, although I’m not going to put a time-scale on it.

The main related sites in the “Around-England” family are:
Eden Valley Cumbria
Across The North
My old Lake District sites are now being drawn into the “Around-England” family and are currently being revamped.

My Lake District retail sites sell books, old photos and general lake district gifts:
The Lake District in Books
Lake District Gifts
The Lake District in Old Photos
The Wainwright Guides

My intention now (October 2014) having settle into something like a routine here in Kirkby Stephen, is to recommence regular postings on this site and on the other “Around-England” sites including Eden Valley Cumbria and also a newsy site about the North of England as a whole, Across The North. All have been delayed due to extended health issues both with my wife and myself but I’m now looking forward to developing the “family” of sites further, reviving some earlier experiments and adding others very selectively.

Terms of Use, Financial Transparency, Privacy, etc.

There is a variety of information which I am legally obliged to include. In complying I have tried to use plain English and avoid gobbledygook.

The same paragraphs relate to all of my sites. So as to avoid unnecessary repetition and for ease of updating they can be found in one place at:
