About Page Mill North

Page Mill North Limited is my semi-retirement professional services company.

Once I caught up on the things I neglected while working full time, I began planning for some of the travel I had promised myself would be part of retirement.

At the same time I started to help friends of friends with home entertainment systems and computers, and decided to set up a web site to offer personalized technology assistance.

In 2007 my travels and my services venture came together.  Following two fascinating tours with Astrid Baur Travel in Germany, an opportunity arose to re-develop the website of what has now become European Castles Tours.

Websites for travel have turned out to be a great fit for me.  The content is always interesting, I get chances to contribute some of my own photography, and I've been able to travel more.  Perfect.

As you'll see on the Samples page, I've also done other types of websites and glossy brochures.

My rates reflect the fact that this is now more hobby than business.  Beats doing crossword puzzles.
