Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria
Review of Kirkby Stephen by brian-arthur bainbridge on November 20th, 2009
I was born on the 1.11.1951 in Hartley and I did not realise how wonderful this area was untill I returned 20 years later. How many people have the same feeling? At the moment I live in Berlin but visit my (home town) as often as possible.Who has the same thoughts??
All that I desire to point out is the general principle that life imitates art far more than art imitates life - Oscar Wilde
