Pictures page

As “Google Maps” pictures are updated it is difficult to keep up to date. But at the time of writing (Jan 2013) here is a link to the Google Maps picture that is pretty detailed. Just above the centre is a large field with a single white dot in the centre. That is the old polo pitch and squash court. The Kaptagat Arms is the enclusure to the right of that. The trees on the left side of the road are where the river and waterfall are. The school is just below the centre of the picture. A large white rectangle, the swimming pool, is the most distinctive feature.

Quite a few pictures and other bits now in our gallery. If you think you can correct or add to the name lists e-mail Andyrxxx at
