    Billinge History

    By Dave,
    A while back I found a good web site about Billinge. I contacted the owner and offered to make a PDF file out of the Word docs they had on the site. Anyway, I made one and they linked through to my site. I'd forgotten it was there, but I found it again today and moved it to the new server.   Billinge History   The URL for the site is in the doc.
