    This was one of the first newspaper report that we came across about this project in 2009. Most of the comments that were added to the article at the time, were against this project and have were removed and only one remains.

    Although this is an old article (2009) - Rachel Feldberg stated back then - “But we want to emphasise that we do not want to do anything in any way that will upset anyone or damage the moors.
    “If we could find some way of inscribing Simon’s poem into rocks that would be a dream; but you have to work within the parameters you’re given. We are in talks with Bradford Council."

    Even the first paragraph states 'but the historic landscape will not be damaged.'

    Well Rachel, when it actually comes to the 'Literature' in the article, your written words mean nothing.

    Agree Mikki,not only that she doesn't understand the difference between dream and delusion, she also has not constructed the sentence very well leaving room for misinterpretaion as to the difference between employing grammatically correctly the words 'dream' and 'carving'.....

    Wonder how often she has visted the other poem in Carlisle then if she thinks reading poems on rocks is a dream. Does anyone know how often Rachel rambles on the moors ????
