Updated Wallpapers for 2012
Places-to-go have selected a few of the many photographs on this site for you to use as Wallpaper on your PC. The images have been selected from my collection for their quality and variety, to provide you with backgrounds that will welcome you to your computer every time that you turn it on.
Simply click on the image that you prefer and you will be taken to a screen containing two full size images, the first at a resolution of 1024 x 768 and another at a resolution of 800 x 600. Wait until the images have fully loaded then right-click on the image at the preferred resolution and select "set as Background". Alternatively selected images can be downloaded onto your hard disc for you to choose varying wallpapers as required.
If you are not sure of your screen resolution, right click on your desktop, select properties from the drop down menu and click on the Display Properties / Settings tab, where you will see your screen resolution setting displayed. If your screen resolution is set higher than those provided then just select stretch in the Display Properties / Desktop tab.
For those of you with the Windows 7 operating system, I have included a Desktop Theme which incorporates these pictures as a slideshow and can be downloaded below.

|Holme Pack-horse bridge. Dating from 1664 situated on
the outskirts of Bakewell in Derbyshire.
Ashlar gritstone. Narrow bridge with 5 segmental arches and cutwaters which rise as pedestrian retreats; offset band beneath parapet of deeply-coursed blocks with single-chamfered copings.
|Bibury is situated in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds on
the River Coln 9 miles from the market town of Burford.
One of the village's main tourist spots and overlooking a water meadow and the river is Arlington Row, a group of ancient cottages with steeply pitched roofs dating back to the 16th Century.
|Bolsover Castle a romantic residence built by Sir Charles Cavendish in 1612 and completed by his son William. Marvel at the outstanding craftsmanship everywhere - the rich panelling, elaborate fireplaces and painted ceilings. Enjoy the glorious enclosed garden. The structure known as the 'Little Castle' is shown here.||The Hampton Court Pond Gardens. One of three sunken gardens which were originally ornamental ponds, used for holding freshwater fish until they were needed in the kitchens for cooking. Today they contain impressive displays of spring and summer bedding.|
|The Tulip Festival at RHS Harlow Carr Harrogate. It is well worth taking time out for a relaxing stroll this Spring around RHS Harlow Carr Gardens where more than 25,000 tulips will be on show in an amazingly colourful display.||This garden at Sezincote surrounds a fine house built to encompass Indian character in 1810. It is reminiscent of the Brighton Dome. The Indian influence is seen in the garden and the drive that goes over an Indian Bridge with statues of bulls.|
|Welford-on-Avon is 4 miles downstream from Stratford-upon-Avon. The pretty village is situated south of the river which meanders around it in a large loop. There is an attractive mixture of timber and thatch, stone and brick buildings. The distinctive maypole has been on the village green since Shakespear's time.||The National Railway Museum at York.
The most wonderful display of both historic and still running locomotives one could wish to see under one gigantic train shed roof.
