This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick
Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be
added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has
been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather
than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to
create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far
Please let us know any other information that we
can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always
wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be
correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of
course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have
any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page
then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you
quote the CIN Page Ref at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the

Please submit information on locations you discover so
that this system continues to grow.
