The Lez Watson Inexperience

Pisspoor Productions© proudly present the universally acknowledged website of the century. The 18th century.

Welcome to this award losing website. In the clouds® since 2000, this jolly little construction offers all its readers something for the weekend - and the weekdays too. Look below for loads of one-size-fits-all stuff, personal and un-personal.

Forthcoming Attractions

Among the many wonderful and charming things here for your delectation, must see items include:

The Ordnance Survey Leisure Map summary lists. Updated regularly for the discerning cartomaniac and list buffs. This project began about a decade ago with the data entered on to filing cards. My, hasn't it grown?

The work of The Man from Cucamonga. The late and very great Frank Zappa. Twenty years after his death, Zappa continues to exert a subtle influence on modern popular music. Frank is much discussed and written about, but his music is seldom played on the radio. My little list will give the reader/listener/viewer a wee signpost to the work that is Frank.

Festiniog and Welsh Highland Railways. A short introduction to the narrow gauge railways of Snowdonia and North Wales. Being a bit of a link-fest for those who like that sort of thing...

A short archaeological career. What I did as a young man. Oh yes, and some lovely guff about our pets.

And, pictured below, a family photograph from the summer of 1951, taken in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

All this, and more, for less than the price of a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich. Enjoy!

I guess I should add a few words about what I get up to here. The Ordnance Survey pages are a used resource and updated monthly. Other pages are updated now and then as the odd bit of info turns up or something happens of note (Frank Zappa, Cats & puppy), while some aren't updated so much these days (Airfields or Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways).

When not revising and updating the Ordnance Survey pages, I'm expanding and improving some of my other pages, occasionally creating new ones.

I can be found on Facebook and belong to a small number of discussion groups related to my interests. I am married, with one puppy (born in June 2017). I retired from work in the Autumn of 2016, and we happy three live in the middle of England.

Before you go, have a look at the Projects and Links page, the repository of bits and pieces of work, made and partly made.

I hope you find something of interest, and that your journey was worthwhile. Don't forget to wrap up warm!
