1688, my goodness ! The island where I live was only discovered in the late 1700's, Vancouver Island on Canada's west coast, discovered by Captain George Vancouver, Royal Navy, between 1791 and 1794.

I wonder if walls built today will still be standing in another 320 years. I bet that one will remain standing until the council knocks it down.

Alan, Noticed what could be council officials last week making notes, Looks like it is next on cards for demolishing, Why can they not spend more time in their offices working out how to get council tax reduced, They had better put guards outside the church or that may also get demolished.
