Yeah, looked like a classic Mid Walian upland ring to me...albeit somewhat 'disturbed'. Just read the comments on the miscellaneous post. What is that all about? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Orkney / News by drewbhoy

Well one thing is for certain, it was up North not down south that 'civilisation' began. ;) One thing TMA has taught me is to love and appreciate these far flung islands... moss Posted by moss

House Of The Fairies / Fieldnotes by drewbhoy

I've been watching stuff about st kilda & your posts drew..it makes my heart yearn so. I never thought I'd get to the orkney s or the isle of lewis so maybe. I long for the blue water...soppy git. The beauty of these places though .I've been left feeling like it was a dream.

Stonehenge and its Environs / News by Littlestone

Quote from Mike Pitts' letter : "All archaeological excavation is both destructive and creative ... " I agree with him there.

There is also another letter in that edition of the Times as follows:
"The argument that the tunnel will clear a traffic bottleneck is risible: it will merely move the bottleneck another ten miles down the A303. There will be gridlock from the top of Wylie Down going west to Willoughby Hedge, some five miles further on. The next stretch of dual carriageway is at Mere. The tunnel is not necessary. There are better uses for the forecast sum of £1.6million."
James Bishop
Wincanton, Somerset.

I have to say in the current climate of uncertainty and upheaval it would be better to leave well enough alone. And it is well enough. Suspect Mike Pitts is looking for some archaeological glory to bask in.

That... is a bit excellent. Brilliant. Well done that farmer. The near field is just marvellous. The barrow is alright too I suppose... Lovely. September is awright - isn't it? Howburn Digger Posted by Howburn Digger

Stowe's Pound / News by moss

Well not quite you would have to be very slim! Really it is just the old world being hit by the new. In this instance the practice of 'land art' is interpreted as vandalism on a prehistoric site, which it is from the historic viewpoint. In the good old days 'the Ministry of Works' cemented all those medieval castles into the ground!

Thanks tjj, my route up was very enjoyable with wonderful views of the valleys and lakes, the clouds didn't start until quite near the tops of the mountains. I'm out of condition though, I was knackered when I reached the top of Pen yr Ole Wen. After that it was a stroll really, all the hard work done. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Llety'r Filiast / Fieldnotes by tjj

Visited the amazing Great Orme copper mines a couple of years or so ago. Would have been happy to go back this time but my companion on this trip suffers from claustrophobia. Plus there was a large party of school kids heading in that direction .... tjj Posted by tjj

Thank you, I appreciate that a lot. It's a fantastic place isn't it? I reckon it's one of the best-placed monuments in Wales, with the drop down to the lake below. Seriously big cairn too, for all the messing about that's happened to it. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

LLandudno seems to be one of the nicer seaside towns at the moment, hope it stays that way. Did you visit the mines whilst you on the Great Orme? Posted by costaexpress
