 A LOOK BACK IN TIME
Some folk may remember the "Fletcher Saga", a series of ramblings written by the Limpet's editor shortly after he arrived on Stronsay in 2004. These were hosted on a BBC sponsored website which ceased to be maintained in 2008. The content has now been archived onto the Limpet's website where it may be perused at leisure.
