page contains archive photos from the youthful
days of BOOTboys,
loose group of friends of mature years who enjoy defying
the ageing process by getting out into the

for the name, BOOTboys,
it does not primarily derive from an item of footwear but is in
memory of Big Josie, the erstwhile landlady of
the erstwhile Burnmoor Inn at Boot
in Eskdale, who enlivened Saint Patrick's Day
1973 and other odd evenings
many years ago!
