Class31's profile

About me

I'm David Lovell and I live in Warminster Wiltshire.
I am retired now but my last job was for First Great Western at Westbury where we operated a few Class 31 locomotives on services to Weymouth and Brighton. Hence the name.
I was born in Bath and moved to Merthyr Tydfil when I was eight. I have since lived in Titley, Herefordshire, Redhill, Surrey, Darlington Co. Durham, Redcar, Cleveland, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, Trowbridge and Warminster in Wiltshire. For most of my career I have been involved in public passenger transport.
From an early age I have been fascinated by maps and when I was younger I was interested in orienteering which kept me fit as well as allowing me to hone my map reading skills. I was also a keen hill walker largely in Northern England and Snowdonia.
I have been particularly interested in the unlocated images and I was able to locate a good number of these but I fear that those which remain to be located may be too difficult to locate.
I hope everyone can enjoy the Britain from Above website as much as I have.

Hi, I work for the London Festival of Baroque Music (www.lfbm.org.uk) and we have been looking for a good picture of St Peter's Eaton Square to use on this year's website as it is one of our concert venues. I came across the image you uploaded to this website and I was wondering if you might be kind enough to grant us permission to use it on our website? I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Alison Fox
