There are seven areas of the web site, reached by clicking on one of these menus:-
Finding your way around
The information is divided into sections, or chapters, on a particular topic. This section, for example, is called "The Towcester and District Local History Society" as shown at the top of the menu on the left. There could be half a dozen or a dozen web pages in a section, and these are indicated by a menu in the first column.
To navigate between the pages in a section you can use
- the menu on the left; or
- the previous or next buttons just below the red banner area at the top of the page; or
- the previous page or next page buttons at the foot of the page.
You can always return to the home page (welcome page) by clicking Home at the top left.
There is a page called the Site Map which is a list of all the web pages on the site. This page is sometimes helpful to find what you are looking for. There is a link to it at the foot of every page.
The display will expand to fill the width of your screen, and so is suitable for wide screens. However for printing an A4 sized version of the page is produced. Click "print preview" in the File tab of your web browser (top left) to see what the printed page will look like. To print it click "Print this page" at the top right, instead of using "print" in the File tab.
The images on the webpage are only small size thumbnails to make loading of the page faster. You can click on most images to see an enlarged version in a pop-up window. If an enlarged version of an image is available the image will have a red border when the mouse pointer is over it.
Some pages or images may be copyright. There is a link to our applicable copyright conditions at the foot of every page.
The old style of web page
Pages dated before August 2009 are in the old format, which is set at a fixed A4 width. Enlargements of most images is still possible, but the navigating between pages is by links at the very top or very bottom of the page.
