Walking down that narrow gap between rocky ridges, I could almost feel the iron age folk all round me, like being in a street, or at the market. Either way I felt as close to them as anywhere i've yet been. postman Posted by postman

Yeah, quite amazing, isn't it? Looking around for dry stone it suddenly hit me... hang on, this is it!! No need. So the massive cross wall was a bonus. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
