The gallery area is for the sharing of images taken on WGWG walks. The collection is subdivided into chronological groups.

Members wishing to have images included or deleted need to contact one of the website editors.


Common social media systems like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are fine for sharing single images but at present are unsuitable for large image collections and have limited privacy settings. There are many external systems designed specifically for storing and displaying images. Image hosting examples include Google Photos, Dropbox, ImageShack, Photobucket, 500px, SmugMug and Flickr. They all have advantages and disadvantages. 

Flickr suitability:

The Flickr account privacy and permissions settings are set to minimise activity on the Flickr site, and offer far greater protections than  what is available on normal social network sites and most other image hosting systems. Examples of our key image permissions:

The current display shows albums in reverse chronological order (the most recent at the top) and images within an album are displayed in chronological order.

Historical Built-in Image Carousel System

Images from 2019-2022 were originally displayed using the default built-in Google Sites image carousel system. While there are advantages, the many  disadvantages led to a move to  seek a system that could better cope with images of different sizes and aspect ratios. In particular the ability to display albums containing a mixture of high resolution landscape and portrait photos - something which the Google Sites image carousel system is unable to manage - became a priority. In 2023 all the photographs, in their original high resolutions, were imported into Flickr.
