this picture turned up a day later

the belly dancer had just finished her show by the time I got my camera on

this is the centre of TOUCHWOOD with the info counter to the right.

camera shake

in Touchwood shopping mall
80 shops in 3 Arcades

Heart Foundation collector
and the belly dancer

out under the cinema, over this square with the foutain wall
and into the library and art's center with gallery and theatre

After logging on with my library card
and getting ready to do some genealogy,
this is the start screen,

with links to these web sites:-

PAF Family Tree file 5.2

A pleasant atmosphere
and there is also a search room with fiche and film

on this old PC I first experienced the thrill of finding my grandmother in Raglan on the 1881 census cd

the bridge was added when the shopping centre was completed, the library modernized and houses computer terminals.

about three hours later I emerged

Touchwood is almost a cathedral of shopping with its many curves and clerestory.

Opened in September 2001

The concept architects were Eric Kuhne Associates (with a nasty flashy web site)

and architects for the Touchwood arcades and leisure village were BDG McColl (flash 8 warning)
