"Teddy Bears Picnic" obviously! If you go down to the woods today.... well, best not, to be honest, cos you'll bump into a load of smelly bikepackers....

Certainly Steve's suggestion will be playing full blast throughout our WRT meanderings :smile:

The Spanish C2C route passes right through the place featured on this video, it's been restored to it's former glory using donations from the rock group Metallica and hundreds of hours of work from local people.

You forgot

‘when the evening sun goes down’
‘ harsh times in umberstone covert’
‘Little in the way of sunshine’
‘Restless legs’
‘ Descent of the stiperstones’

plenty of others hidden inside the lyrics. Nigel basically does enough gigs ect so he can go and ride his bikes.

Strangely enough, even though they’re from my home town, I’ve never seen them play.

Sadly I had tickets for the last Northampton gig, but due to a domestic ‘issue’ couldn’t go.

“ On touching the trig point, I found my thrill
To the east, Brokeback Mountain, to the west, Benny Hill
I’ll give you the grid ref, you might like to go
SO224350
Could this be heaven, could that be the Severn
Twmpa, Twmpa, you’re gonna need a jumper
It gets a bit chilly on top of Lord Hereford’s Knob”

You don’t get lyrics like those elsewhere :-bd
