The content of this site was first drafted as a booklet in the dying days of the 1990's. After a delay due to work commitments, I initially published the booklet as a simple website on some free webspace at the beginning of the new century before buying the web name
A couple of years later I moved out of area and was heavily involved in other projects. For many years this website ran automatically without any updates.
The website was the only on-line source on Hengistbury Head for several years. Now other websites have now come on-line and provide excellent resources on this very special place. (see the links page) But this site still comands a significant niche audience and perhaps offers some information unavailable elsewhere.
I have returned to the area and now have some more time to work on this this site. I hope to update, correct and enhance the site in the coming months.
The site remains an independant web site. It is neither financed or controlled by any bodies other than me.
If you want to contact me then email me as bill at hengistbury-head dot co dot uk I plan to get to this email once per week but in all likelyhood it will be checked daily.
At the moment all Google Adsense adverts have been removed as they have just got too ugly. But they (or others) may be (sparsley) re-introduced to enable the site to pay its hosting fees.

You are free to download and duplicate my copyrighted text and images on condition that downloads are used for personal or educational purposes. I also generally do not mind if you use my data from the site for other reasons BUT I would like an email first asking permission. The "legalese" is as follows:
Any downloads must not be used for profit, for commercial use, or for incorporation in any media that is offered 'for sale' or otherwise commissioned for payment without getting the site owners written permission first.
The standard question I get is "Can I use some data/images in a school/college project?" The answer to that is (always) yes. It would be nice (if practicable) if you could mention the site URL near the item used. But no worries if it is too difficult to do.
The Useful links page and other places thoughout this site contain links to other internet sites that look useful but I have no control over their content.
