:lol: Ah, erm, well, that era was all a bit of a blur to be honest. I do vaguely remember this very nice person. Or was that the famous 'shimmering, diaphanous (*), lady of the lake' who brought me a quilt and pillow at midnight one freezing November bivvy night? Anyway, erm, I might be able to stretch to Uni fees? Or at least a short corrrespondence course in something or other.

:smile: good for her! Maybe we should do a Better Slate Than Never 2 tour?

Sounds like you had an ace time at Zipworld (**) :-bd .

(*) today's word?

(**) sounds like a particularly tedious small-town museum of clothing fastenings to me

Looks like it's been landscaped out of existence (*) mate :wink:. Appreciate the thought though thanks :-bd

(*) actually a serious problem in some cases of historical importance. Lots of instances of "landscaping an eyesore [sic]" destroying an irreplaceable record of industrial/social history.

Also, landfilling and landscaping old quarries often removes an important local recreational resource.

There's been several half decent climbing venues destroyed in Leicestershire like this, at the same time we are all being told to get more fresh air and exercise. There aren't many climbable quarries left in Leicestershire now, so it's another hour in the car to the Peaks.

Absolutely. And potential nature reserves too. Filling in a life expired quarry obviously restores land to agriculture for example, but some that have been left untouched are real wildlife havens and visitor attractions.

After realising how interesting Roman Roads actually are and that they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, terrain and elevation (I always assumed they're all horizontal!). Then seeing that there might be the possibility that Reg also has a special scientific interest in Roman Roads (see Youtube vid in other thread). I've added it to the list.

Sorry, but looking forward to your Roman Roads stories. Duncan already shared one (thanks Pistonbroke) in which it appears to have gone rather bouldery!

Its just steps, though the gaps between are a bit big or wonky in places, else good. :-bd
the key holds to get onto the corner ledge ( near the top), are the base of a few near verical bored holes. about inch n' half wide, inch deep, with a thin wall on one side!

I can take you up one day, roped up if you prefer :grin:

Nice breezy cool day. How unusual.

Quarry. Got sand in it. Not much more one can say.

Put some Arsos cream on again. It felt just like this:
