The Lake District
Arrival in Penrith
Having agreed a voluntary swap with Keith Schofield in autumn 1974 from OS Llanrwst to OS Penrith I travelled to Penrith on Monday 07 April 1975. We had made a day visit to the office on 23 December the previous year to meet people and familiarise ourselves with the town; John W. Parker was there. I had met John briefly when he took over the OS Llangefni section in early 1973.
