This is a personal website
This is just me creating a personal presence in cyberspace. However, there are links to information of interest to other Cluers in the world and to my personal webcams.
I am a retired science teacher who lives and worked in Croydon (UK). The webcam page gives more specific information and also a view out of my upstairs window.
I was heavily involved in NASUWT (the teachers’ union), both locally and as a National Executive Member, and you will find links to the Croydon Branch’s website.

Webcam & Weather (including air quality)
For some time I have had a webcam pointing out of my upstairs window.
Often when I am working at my computer and I hear people accessing it. You can look up and down my road and sometimes see a tram go pass the end of the road.
It is still online, but now you will have to click through a couple of pages to reach it. That is so that I can give you more information about it and provide a link for you to sign my visitors’ book. Sometimes I have other webcams set up.
You can also see data from my weather station on the roof.
The Cluer clan
As “Cluer” is such an unusual surname I feel all the world’s Cluers must be share a relatively recent ancestor.

In Scotland there is a small hamlet called Cluer. The photo shows me there in 2006.
