    Following on from https://northernantiquarian.forumotion.net/t370-the-celtic-walls where there's maps, satellite views, photo's and info. from Speight, I drove over to Paulus's and dragged him out of bed at the crack of 10:00am (hope you've recovered ?) then via the top Watersheddles road to Colne,Barrowford,Gisburn,Long Preston,Settle by-pass to meet Paul from Earby in the lay-by on Buck Haw Brow a short drive into Feizor but being Sunday it was full of Grockles cars so back out to park at P on the map

    Pity you weren't out with us. Twas a good day. I still aint checked the record-books, but Mr Hornby may have discovered at least one previously unrecorded tomb. A couple of other 'possibles' close by.

    j

    Paul Hornby didn't have a camera and doesn't have internet.
    I put 37 photo's and a Map with x8 fig. ref's up,
    all so offered to pick you up at Gisburn Church after 11:00 (we did look you weren't there)
    Go on what more do you want ? Levitation photo's ?

    Didn't call at Phil Hudsons, but I go passed at least once a fortnight as we shop at Booth's and Settle Coal,
    I'll go in next time and see if I can blag a brew by dropping your name
    cheers Danny

    Brilliant pics of what looks like a day out I'll always regret missing......Bin wanting to visit erratics since exhausting climb up to Ghyll in July...nevermind......love the tour and that teddy must be exhausted, do the RSPCA know you drag him on outbound treks all hours of the day and night...
    The levitation looks interesting as well, must take up the course sometime.
    Thanks for sharing....I had a terrible day cutting out over 100 new shrubs that decided to invade my garden over summer, and thinking of new ways of getting rid of garden rubbish once the bins were full up.....chronic decrepitism on Monday to prove it...
    thanks for sharing pics, loved seeing what I missed out on, don't feel so deprived and overworked now....

    Here's the profile for the "Apronful of Stones", as it used to be known: the giant cairn we visited (site no.008 on the map) just above Stackhouse, near Settle:

    http://megalithix.wordpress.com/2008/09/12/apronful-of-stones-settle/

    Looks like there's quite a lot of other things nearby that aint in the catalogues. Another day out up there p'raps...? (will it ever end!?)
