We’ve had a link to the Fisher’s webcam on our home page for over two years, but recently it hasn’t been working, due I thought to a hitch at Fisher’s end.
On Sunday I thought there must be a solution and contacted our website developer Leanda Ryan to ask if she could find out what was wrong.
Monday afternoon she was back with the answer – Fishers had changed their website and the code for accessing the webcam. And now she had fixed it. The first picture I got yesterday (see opposite) was the clearest I had ever seen and a real come-on to get up there in the snow!
It’s a really useful facility, which gives you an up to date picture of weather conditions in the Derwent Valley and on the Skiddaw massif from a distance, whether you’re in Edinburgh, Tyneside or Leeds. Combine this with the BBC weather forecasts, also accessible from our home page and the daily high tops reports and you’ve got a fairly good idea of what weather to expect over the next 8 -12 hours.
This is good news and all thanks to a very efficient Leanda for getting things done within a busy schedule. If you want some smart design, website creation or digital development work done yourself, contact her at www.leandaryan.com
And while we are about it, thanks to Fishers Outdoors shop in Keswick for allowing access to their webcam.
