Sunday 29 August 2010: A Century!

Well I made it to 100 blips!

Most people seem to do something to mark the 100 so I took the picture above.


It's the date stone above the main entrance to the original part of Cragwood House on the shores of Windermere. It too reaches a century this year.

Cragwood House is the headquaters of Impact International, the company I work for.

Cragwood was designed by Frank Dunkley for the industrialist, Albert Warburton.

It was later owned by Norman Buckley who was good friends with Donald Campbell. Both were into driving record breaking speedboats. Donald met his untimely end on Coniston Water driving Bluebird.

Visitors to the Cragwood House Hotel can see various powerboating photographs from the time.
