By Farooq A. Kperogi, Ph.D. Twitter:@farooqkperogi I want to congratulate Malam Adamu Adamu on his well-deserved appointment as minister of education and call his attention to an article I wrote on teacher-training colleges on January 19, 2013.

Shaw and Jagger are excited to announce that planning permission has been granted on an application to reinstate gardens and to re-open a public café as part of the ongoing refurbishment works at the Lingholm Estate, Portinscale, Keswick. The cafe has been designed to reference the gardens original potting shed, which is named in the grade II listing for the site and shall be preserved within the scheme. The use of Lakeland slate and stone on the building will assure the new addition sits comfortably alongside Lingholm Main House; its outlook will be solely into the enclosed garden, away for the main house to maintain privacy for those staying in holiday accommodation on the estate. The cafe will be a standalone structure, completely separate from the house and existing garden potting shed. This allows the cafe building and the public enclosed garden associated with it to be open 7 days a week throughout the year, as its own entity within the refurbished estate.
A key aspect of the design is to provide a destination on the western shore of Derwentwater between Keswick and Catbells/Dales Way and other tourist attractions. The café and garden that it sits within will be an accessible public space offering modern facilities, whilst referencing the history of the site and the wider estate. The garden will be an informal public space, welcoming all visitors whether they are using the cafe facilities, playground, staying on the estate or walking through the site to or from the new jetty for Derwentwater steam launch, or adjacent Catbells.
Further information about the estate can be found on their website: www.thelingholmestate.co.uk which features all the renovations that Shaw and Jagger are assisting with on the existing Grade II listed estate such as the recently completed Lake View apartment.

St Werburgh’s parish church in Warburton near Lymm. This is the newer of the two St Werburgh parish churches in Warburton dating from the 1880s. The earlier chuch is potentially 12th Century. There is evidence of Bronze and Iron Age settlement in Warburton and the Time Team programme visited in 2006 to attempt to locate a Roman fortlet. They didn’t. Although I have not seen the episode this result presumably had Sir Tony Robinson in some form of apoplexy over discarded pottery.
