    here's a more detailed map



    and a couple of aerial shots



    of the two main clusters



    I've got them all logged into a Garmin GPS so it's just a case of pressing "go to", in order, to end up with a good days photographing
    I cann't figure a way of posting the Memory Map .mmo file on here ? but if any one would like it I could e-mail it no problem.
    So if there's any interest ? It could maybe turn into a TNA days outing (not forgeting the Grouse shooting at the moment)
    Any comment's -- cheers all Danny

    Cheers for that Danny. spot-on Received at this end. I've emailed it to Dave aswell, as it seems there's much necessary info in relation to the intrusion caused by that pipeline over Askwith Moor and the archaeo-regulations.
