Having got a few pictures up, I've totally reworked the layout of the main site. Once I started adding text, I felt that the text size was too small. I was also worried that photographs may have been too wide for older screens.
These have been fixed and at the same time I tidied up the colour scheme.
The other major change was to simplify the page menu. As the site is going to contain several dozen pages, a full page menu was going to be to long. I have changed the menu so that the main sections on the site are shown in a tabbed bar across the top. Clicking on any tab opens the main page for that section. A context-sensitive menu on the right then shows any sub-pages for that section. (Actually for that page but there are no sub-sub-pages in the public part of the site, at least for the moment.)
