Peter in 2018


Ross in 2021


Welcome from Peter Burman and Ross Burgess!

We've created this site as a portal to some of our interests and activities.

Our story

We were an item many years ago, but drifted apart and had other relationships. Peter had moved from London to York, then Edinburgh, and finally to the historic village of Falkland, Fife. Ross had been living in Purley in the London Borough of Croydon since 1992 (latterly with his first husband, Roger Burg, until Roger's death from cancer). By the end of 2018 we were both single, and re-kindled our relationship. We were married in June 2019, with a Humanist wedding in Falkland, followed by a re-affirmation of vows at the Unitarian Church in Croydon. For a couple of years we divided our time between Purley amd Falkland, but in June 2022 Ross sold his house in Purley, and we both permanently settled north of the border, with a historic house in Falkland, Fife, and new for 2023. a flat in the Inverleith area of Edinburgh, very near the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Despite no longer having to do the long journey between Falkland and Purley, we still find that our various other activities take us here and there, and we much enjoy visiting friends in different parts of the UK and overseas.

Ross had a long career as an IT consultant, and subsequently maintained websites (trading as 'Foxearth IT Solutions') for a variety of organisations, but he's now aiming to shed much of this work, while still doing a little book editing and publishing. Peter is now on the Buildings Committee of our local Scottish Episcopal Church, St James's Goldenacre.

Peter has had an interesting career as an academic – he still classes many of his former students at the Universities of York and Cottbus among his special friends – and in his work with historic buildings and those who look after them.
