As the www.edenlinks.co.uk site is no longer on line, Les Strong has kindly given the Cumbria FHS permission to reproduce the content of the site here.

For the moment it is a simple restoration of the archive image from the wayback machine, so some items may be missing, particularly pictures which for some reason do not appear to have been archived, but most information should be there. Over time the contents will be checked and integrated into the main Cumbria FHS website, though this will take some time as there are other priorities. In the meantime if you find any problems please contact the webmaster via the contact page on the main website www.cumbriafhs.com/contact and we will do our best to find the missing item.
