Notice: our web cams will be down for some considerable time

Some of you may recall that the signal from the cathedral tower travels first to the Silk Mill and then onwards in order to achieve connectivity to the web.
You may also recall that a complete overhaul of the Silk Mill building (just visible behind the trees in the screengrab below) is now underway and that it became clear some time ago that our kit on their building would have to be removed and that there might not be another site on the building for it once the work is complete.
Just a reminder of what our web cams did!

Very fortunately, the removal of our kit didn't take place during the breeding season so, if it had to happen at all, this is the best time of year for the cams to be down....the birds rarely show on them now, preferring to perch elsewhere, eg on the tower higher up or on Jurys Inn.

We are sorry for this break in transmission but rest assured we are doing everything we can to find a solution and get up and running once more.
