Welcome to Lyndenlea

If you're wondering where the rest of this website's gone, don't worry - it's all been safely moved to the new About Lyndenlea site.

As the Lyndenlea websites are so many and varied, I've decided to bring back a feature that used to adorn this page until 2005. That feature is the Site Index, offering a brief introduction and of course links to each site. This incarnation is considerably less garish than the original, however, not least because some of the sites' colour schemes have been toned down a little in the intervening years.

About Lyndenlea
If Lyndenlea is "my home on the web" then this is surely the front door. It could almost be described as a meta-website - a website about websites - as much of its content describes the various features I've incorporated. But the jewel in the crown has to be the section about the poem and its somewhat random juxtaposition with the apple tree in my garden.
Lyndenlea Bells
Way back in May 2004 this site was launched to provide a new home for an already rather archaic route-finder for church bell ringers. Now it's a valuable source of information about church bells past and present in and around Bristol and Bath. The route-finder's still there, though, doing sterling work for anyone who - like myself - hasn't yet jumped onto the Sat-Nav bandwagon.
Lyndenlea Milestones
The second of my major historical research projects, this time looking at roadside milestones. These sentinels of mileage are now slowly disappearing into the undergrowth, unused and rarely noticed by today's high-speed travellers. I've been out photographing and recording many of the milestones that remain around Bristol and Bath so you can see them all from the comfort of your own home.
Martin S Pearson
An entire website all about me and what I get up to when I'm not busy with my research projects. It's largely there to give you an idea of the person behind the name at the bottom of the page, but there are some interesting little gems hidden away in its darker corners too. Keep your mind open if you decide to venture in as I've pretty much let myself run riot.
Queens On A Chessboard
This project actually started out as one of those hidden gems in a dark corner of my personal site. Here, my Dad Colin and I investigate the old Eight Queens Puzzle, teasing out answers to questions that nobody's thought to ask and expanding the puzzle beyond the standard 64-square chessboard. Check out my brilliant chessboard diagrams, all made out of pure HTML and CSS code.
