Bug walk, words, live music

There is an illustrated plan of Calverley Grounds at the entrance to the park. I watch a tiny beatle walk very slowly over a patch of grass on the map, on it way to the shelter of some trees.

There are 988,968 words in the English language according to Global Language Monitor, a San diego based linguistic consultancy. As new words are added regularly, there will soon be more than a million.


The following groups are listed in Sankey's restaurant in its Live Music Line Up for St George's Day:

The Quiet one
Big Red 1
Matt The Gadd
Defenders of the Planet Earth
Rumour

Twelve hours of live music are promised.
