Internetworks is a web design company with one major difference - we own and maintanin 4 large and successful websites of our own, and we bring all of this experience to bear on the work we do for you. Here is a brief description of some of the websites we have designed - we hope you will enjoy them.
|www.livery companies.com Livery companies of London - Masters, badges and halls|
This is the newest of our websites, dating from December 2011. The home page gives a completfe list of the 108 Livery Companies of the City of London, with names of their Masters and Clerks. It also has links to a map of the location of the Hall (for the companies which have halls), a picute of the current Master, and a picture of the Master's badge.
The website was crdeated because Piers Nicholson, our Managing Director, is currently Master of the Tylers and Bricklayers Company, and he thought he and other Masters would find it very useful to have a readily-accessible list of the other Masters, many of whom he willmeetr from time to time dureing the course of his Master's year.
|www.sundials.co.uk Sundials on the Internet|
Sundials are becoming increasingly popular as focal points for gardens and open spaces, as markers to commemorate a special event, and as presents for the increasing number of people who already have everything.
We started Sundials on the Internet in 1996, and it has become one of the leading information sites about sundials in the world. There is a wealth of information about how sundials work, including some projectsyou can do, a list of 40 sundial trails from all over the world, and information about sundials you can buy
|www.epsom.townpage.co.uk Epsom and Ewell on the Internet|
Epsom and Ewell is a borough in the county of Surrey, just outside the London border. It is also a very pleasant place in which to live, to work or to visit
It is famous because the Derby is run every year in June on Epsom Downs, as it has been for the last 200 years. Other historical associations are with Nonsuch Park (the site of the palace of King Henry VIII), Mrs. Beeton (who spent much of her life in Epsom), the Pre-Raphaelites (who visited and worked in Epsom), Samuel Pepys (who describes his visits to the well where Epsom salts were first discovered) and many other local personalities
Epsom is also distinguished by its unique system of local government. Our council is unique in England in that the Council is controlled by councillors nominated by independent Residents Associations. This has brought great advantages to Epsom; our councillors are not beholden to national political pagrties, nor are they looking for political careers elsewhere in the future; they have been able to concentrate whole-heartedly on what is best for Epsom and Ewell. It is a tribute to this system that our new shopping cetres, offices, and industrial developments have been integrated within our existing urban fabric without destroying the appearence of our Market Square and town centre.
We are based in Epsom, and we have been proud to have produced this website
in 1996, and to maintain and expand it since. We have had some notable
successes, including linking with our excellent Bourne
Hall Museum to produce the Bourne Hall Outreach Programme. This brings
the content of the splendid exhibitions they hold there to a much w ider
audience, and also helped to attract a lottery grant.
|www.santiago-compostela.net The Camino de Santiago in northern Spain|
The Camino de Santiago is a 1,200 year old pilgrimage route. The main part of it is the Camino Francés which stretches across the whole of northern Spain from St.Jean-Pied-du-Port near Biarritz in France, through Pamplona, Logroño, Burgos, and Leon to Santiago de Compostela.
This website is designed to show people thinking of doing this interesting (and mind-changing) walk exactly what the Camino is like. Most people over-estimate the difficulties of the terrain, and the walking surfaces, and under-estimate the fact that their feet are probably not used to walking a reasonably long distance every day. The 1,500 pictures on this website give a very detailed picture of the path, the refugios, the scenery, the monuments, and the curiosities of the Camino.
The most recent stage of development of this website has been supported by the regional government of Galicia, and has enabled us to include pages on the Camino Aragones from Oloron Ste. Marie in France to Somport, Jaca, and Puente La Reina, and also the Camino de Finisterre from Santiago to Finisterre and Muxia, and the Camino Ingles from Ferrol and A Coruna to Santiago

|www.spot-on-sundials.co.uk The innovative Spot-On Sundial|
The Spot-On Sundial is an accurate, beautiful scientific sundial which incorporates a significant design innovation; the split gnomon produces a "line of light" for a few minutes at noontime, and this enables the sundial to be oriented "spot on" to true North without using much less accurate compass methods.
The original Spot-On Sundial is 17 cm. square, and is made in 8 different models for Northern latitudes between 57 deg. N (Edinburgh) and 28 deg N, and one Southern Hemisphere model which can be used between 27 degrees S and 41 degrees S.These sundials can be personally engraved on the side of the gnomon, and can normally be delivered in a few days.
27 cm. and 34 cm. models models in brass are now being introduced.
The new Spot-On Sundial in stainless steel has been designed for public open spaces and large gardens. It is made from 10 mm. stainless steel and is thus very robust. It too incorporates the splint gnomon giving the light of light at every noontime. These dials are availabel in two models, 30 cm and 42 cm. square. Each one is made specifically for its intended location, and has engraving to the exact requirments of the client. It is ideal for a commemorative memorial to a person or a special event. Delivery is normally about four weeks.
Spot-On Sundials also offers the unusual Polar
Sundial in brass.
|www.solar-noon..com The solar noon calculator|
|All sundials have to be aligned
accurately to true North if they are to tell the time correctly. People
think this is easy to do until they come to try it, when they discover that
it is more difficult than it seems. This Solar Noon Calculator offers a different, and much easier, way to
set up sundials to true North. The user keys in the latitude and longitude of the place, and the programme
calculates the exact time of solar noon, corrected for both the Equation of Time and for the longitude.
With this information, one only needs to set the sundial to read noon at the time calculated by the programme, - it is then set to true North for ever. (This operation is particularly easy to do with the Spot-On Sundial which gives a line of light at solar noon, which is of great assistance in the setting-up process

|www.mountathos.co.uk The holy mountain - Mount Athos in Greece|
The holy mountain of Mount Athos is situated in north-east Greece. For over 1,000 years, it has been entirely devoted to religion. It now has many Greek Othodox monasteries. It is enjoying a bith of a revival at present, with increasing numbers of monks and an influx of money to repair the buildings, much of it from the European Community
No women are allowed on the Holy Mountain, and the numbers of men are strictly controlled by a quota; you have to obtain a Greek government permit first, and then apply in person for a permit from the authorities of the Holy Mountain when you arrive. The only access is by boat. The monasteries are very interesting, and you are expected to join in the life of the monasteries in which you stay. You are only allowed to stay for four days; many people find it a mind-changing experience to be part, briefly, of a totally different world.
