Notes from the webfactory

The site is designed to load much faster than other sites you are likely to see on the net, especially when there's heavy web traffic and congestion on the net. After all, we're using a free ISP so we don't have the luxury of high bandwidth. The site is 100% hand-coded W3C CSS validated HTML (clean, lean and mean!) because WYSIWYG web-authoring tools generate reams of extraneous and idiosyncratic coding which really slows down site loading. Likewise the site is free of Frames, Flash and complicated tables because these have to load in full before the site even starts to display.

However, we apologise for the size of the graphics files. Normally we scan and optimise images for the web at about 70dpi but many of the graphics we have at present are high resolution images. So we've put some graphics on the site anyway, in case you're prepared to wait! Others (like the 'Loxton' drawings) we do not have permission to display at high resolution - and with our current workload there are no plans for rescanning.....
