If in the mean time small groups are interested in a tour of Settle, then contact Richard on 01524242414. £4-00 per person, proceeds to Oxfam.

Richard writes:

I possess a very rare recording of Tot Lord talking about his Pig Yard Club Museum on a  BBC Radio interview of 1948. It’s quite fascinating, and anyone wishing to hear it  would need to Google ‘Tot Lord,’ and then click on ‘rwhinray.webs.com.’

Sales of the Tot Lord Town Trail in support of the Cave Rescue Organization stand at around £400 – so not far off our target of £500.  Once this target has been hit, it will be time to think about a 2nd edition – in this, I am looking for help – and wonder if anyone would be interested in giving me a hand.
