    My Mother used to tell me about Dundurn Castle. She was from the north end and said she always wanted to one day live in the Castle. In school they would go on trips to the Castle and she said there was an escape tunnel that you got into from inside the Castle and it went out to the Bay. I...

    Hall family on the Beach

    David asked me to put something up on the Hall family. William Hall was born in Dublin Ireland in 1829 and grew up on the Beach. His father was John Hall and his mother Catherine. In 1849 he married Matilda Corey. Being a rather quiet man he was definitely different from the rowdy Corey...

    From Outlet to Canal

    I'm posting this in a few messages as it is a transcript of a Spectator article from 1881, too long for one post. It isn't about Canal Bridges or the Outlet itself but supplies answers to some questions on both.

    Inlet at the Beach-mystery photo

    I was given this photo (I hope it's not up already and I've missed it) and would very much like to know where it was taken from and of what. It came from Graham Pilling. I can look at it as the outlet but the landscaping isn't right. I tend to think it was that length of land that Martin's...
