Barry,
Why does the Wiki-geeks topic - with one post on it, your own, not have a 'post reply' button?
Is this you ducking for cover?

I extended the Chantry page when I first found a stub there, but it remains, as you say, pretty minimal.
Someone with closer involvement with it might be able to add some info.
There is another (new) article on Cocks and the collection, however, and the digitised images in the Woodhorn website have provided useful references for a few of the other pipes and piping articles.

Hi John,

Administrator fingerslip :oops:

No, not hiding.

My initial point was the omission of the Chantry Bagpipe Museum from the list of museums in the bagpipe section. I think a better description of the Chantry on wikipedia perhaps with pictures and a map might be helpful. Anyway, enough stuff to get rid of that stub category.

Anyone want to give it a go.

Barry

I had a go at the Chantry page, but wonderful MatthewVanitas messed up my 1st attempt.
He also added a 25 year old Google Books link to an article which from its date seems to refer to the opening,
but you can only read a few lines.
But it was a secondary source, as well as invisible, so I removed it.
I have added a few links and some description of the collection.
