You just need to click on the document image to go to the full document stored in the repository. To improve the speed of loading a page, internet browsers store  a copy of the page in a ‘cache’. In some circumstances when revisiting a page, the old stored page is served rather than the new updated page. To overcome this you can simply force re-load the page; on a Windows device press Ctrl and F5 together, on an Apple press Apple key and R or command key and R, on a Linux machine (eg Android or Ubuntu) its just the F5 key. It’s good to get into the habit of doing this particularly if your browser tends to hang on to pages for a long time. A link to documents is also posted on Facebook in the Steeple Claydon Forum.
