    Looks a nice one Danny. spot-on I aint been up to that one misself. Izzit in the Boughey & Vickerman survey? I aint got a copy to hand, as I'm up Scotland, and won't be able to check it again till I've moved mi library up to my new abode, not far from Stirling, at the edge of the hills. If anyone fancies a Scottish holiday, ask me once I've settled in! Cool

    Hi Dan - At long bloody last I'm gerrin round to catching up on a loada missed time. I assume it's OK to upload & add your Raven Stones CR photos onto the TNA profile? I'm doing it today, along with a few others.

    I'm going thru the Skyreholme stuff aswell. Did you get many photos of those carvings up there? Heart & memory took a hit last year, but lucidity is reborn on mi 50th! I was wanting to amble a few more Scottish carvings during this summer, but forgot about the deadly blighters (how the fuck can anyone forget about them???). midges 

    How's the leg? Mending well I hope.

    The hill-test is the only one that gives the right answer, imo. Give it a few more weeks & start running up & down screes, just to make sure it's ready! Cool

    I did indeed! It made me wish I was back down there, on my moors, wandering from stone to craggy-bits, unfurling new designs and checking for the tombs & settlements hiding nearby. Wink
