    Thanks for the great day out I'll stick some photo's on for those that were there, so will not waste too many words.
    Photographt at 07:25 this morning in my back garden

    then onto Bleasdale Circle and set up the Bender and got the crinkle cut chips on

    A Cleg landed on the tarp ridge - Nice Eyes!

    the crew landed a Teddy served Crinkle cut chips with Nandoes Perrie Perrie Ketchup and a French stick buttered rounds the Bear had a South African Pinotage I had a drip Lavazza Coffee

    It was then off to Fair Oak House at SD 64879 46013


    and follow the green dots on the map left by :-





    and then into the wood

    which for us "old buggers" was on a one in stupid slope

    At the Fairy Holes

    Watch out Trolls about

    Teddy plays with Ectoplasm

    Where am I ? Who am I ? It's all gone black ! BUMP!

    Phew! Daylight



    back up the sheer cliff


    Out of the wood But the promised Sedan Chair never showed up!

    Coffee for some, Oxygen for others but it's all downhill from here

    Cheers all Danny and the Bear!

    An excellent day out John! Many thanks for showing us round the sites - very much appreciated. Cool That there Bleasdale site tells us quite distinctly that there's other sites missing or destroyed not too far away. We truly need to scan the region effectively in the hope summat crops us.

    Nice meeting up with Rod aswell. Smile Hopefully see you on a few other outings mate! We're meeting at Ilkley bus/train station this coming Tuesday, 5 July at midday (NOT Monday, as we said earlier - blame Mikki!) if y' fancy coming along - then onto the moors to see some rock art and check over some unscheduled prehistoric settlement.

    ...I think Teddy's coming along again, bringing his mate Danny (if Dan can make it). Not sure whether the chips and wine van is gonna be there again - but I'm sure he'll surprise us with other eccentricities. Some very good images again Danny! And cheers for the Datura!

    Thanks to Dave for gerrin us over there - and hope you were alreet when y' got back mate. See you out on the hills in a week or 2!

    All the best - Paul Smile

    Quite an excentric looking lot! Were there enough crinkle cut chips to go around, or did teddy eat the lot, oh and drink all that wine ? affraid

    Glorious day. Feeling fairly chipper thanks to Dan. I wouldn't mind going there again, if the Duchy of Lancaster, can do a deal with Stannah Stairlifts. Cool

    Hi Ray if you read the title of the photo it said "Teddy plays with Ectoplasm"

    and the definition of Ectoplasm is :-
    Ectoplasm - A strange, mystical material that flows out of any orifice and opening of a mediums body during a seance. This paranormal substance would sometimes take the shapes of faces, limbs, or even an entire figure but could not materialize until it had come out of the body of the medium. The typical color of ectoplasm is a creamy off-white. Quite often this substance was warm and life like but has also been known to be cold. This paranormal material could be doughy, sticky, airy, smoky, or thick and syrupy. This ghostly substance was also known to smell like ozone. Ectoplasm often seemed to form around believers of the paranormal and open minded, and not so much in the presence of the skeptical. Ectoplasm would form most of the time in the dark or in dim lighting. In bright light it would vanish completely or snap back violently.
    from http://www.studiesoftheparanormal.com/ectoplasm.html
    So in the "spirit" (pun intended) of the title Teddy made it !
    You're begining to sound like a Methodist. Isaiah 5:11 ‘Ah, you who rise early in the morning in pursuit of strong drink, who linger in the evening to be inflamed by wine. .
    When Teddy read about the evils of drinking, He gave up reading! Reality is a crutch for people who can’t handle drugs !
    cheers Danny and Teddy

    Teddy stopped at the Edisford Arms at Clitheroe on the way back and had a couple of pints of Jennings Cumberland Bitter !

    Greetings Stoners, excellent day out and good to meet you all, thanks to John and Paul for arranging it. Sorry I missed the pint on the way home!'Evil or Very Mad'
    I watched the Windy Pits prog on the same night (what a load of rubbish)where there was a shot of the interior of an iron age roundhouse showing supporting timbers of the same diameter as the post holes at Bleasdale, is that what we were seeing there?

    Ta for that Danny! My 10-fig ref's very close to yours - but we'll just have to be inaccurate this time & give it an 8-figure. Dreadful of us! Now lemme get that bloody fly-swatter! Razz

    PS - Scotch pancakes on Tuesday sound spot-on! Smile

    Laughing It looks like Danny and teddy were expecting Tony Robinson's Time Team to show up - what with the tent and catering. Danny, its only the TNA Brigantia team. Can't quite compete with Time Team surely. Rolling Eyes

    Hey up, there's a fly in my computer screen - a fly swat need here too. affraid

    The first idea that struck me when I arrived at the circle, was 'round house'. So I think rod could be onto something. Possibly, palisaded later on as those things were. I think only one of us went to the pub on the way home rod.
    Not one to carry tales, but he may have been accompanied by an ursine entity.
