Paul's Bread Pages - Update

My Bread Pages have evolved into a bit of a dogs breakfast of a website over the years. The files are somewhat disorganised on the server and the menus are Java driven which is not appropriate for some basic tablets and mobile phones.
Using the old site, there are a lot of links that are randomly located across the pages and the design needs a facelift.  Now is a good time to redo and update the whole thing.
My intention is to simplify the working of the pages and reduce the number of links to make its navigation an easier experience.

The new home page will split the site into 4 parts.  The old site had about 40 links from the home page.  Each part of the site will be contained in a simple folder structure and the recipes and information sheets will be retained as .pdf downloads to allow for easy printing of useful content.
The first section up for a refurbishment is the historical recipes pages.  These requires a global re-formatting and a few extra pictures.  Most are done now, but I discovered that I did not get around to doing the 19th Century recipies, so I now need to bake a few loaves and take some pictures before I can finish this section.

The website needs to be replaced in its entirity when I have completed the new pages.  The old pages and the new pages are incompatible with each other, so an entirely new website will be installed in a month ot two - when the deed in completed.
