I had wondered about the age of this one as the footprint is good. I'm a big fan of the walk up Founchie Shank to here. Lovely area. Nice set of photos Drew, looks like you had a nice day for it. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Chauvet Cave / News by danielspaniel

Come on... let visitors near the real thing and in no time some numpty would be out with their Sharpie Marker drawing a c*ck and b*lls on those walls in no time. Then taking a selfie and posting it on Twitter.

Most visitors to Dunadd think they are seeing the real footprint, ogham script and boar carving. The originals have been covered over by facsimiles moulded in a sort of resin/ artificial stone for 38 years. Few visitors notice. Nobody is out to fool anybody... just takes one idiot tourist with a hammer and chisel fancying a new ornament for their rockery...

Some moron travelled all the way from Liverpool to Orkney and on to Skara Brae to deface it. No-one gets to actually walk around Skara Brae now.

Hi stubob,
Are there any hints you can give me to aid my finding the stone? I've had several tries at it, all with no luck. Would you be agreeable to taking me to the stone if there are no hints you can give me.
I'm fairly local and am available at short notice if this is possible.

Black Burn / Image by tiompan

Texture was the reason for posting , it's an old pic, but I thought it might be a a good example of sedimentary structures in sandstone but apparently it's not .
There are over a hundred panels in this area ,which has the Urlar Burn as a boundary , the other side of which , despite being much the same geologically etc , has none .

Wow! Lovely stuff Mr T. I love the texture of the rock in these two photos today. I am astonished at how much this area around Urlar Burn and Black Burn has yielded up to the persistance of you and your boots. Bravo sir! Howburn Digger Posted by Howburn Digger

Morfa Bychan / Fieldnotes by postman

If you are still out there Postman repeated your walk today, getting lost in the brambles but eventually finding them, fabulous spot, long may it remain so remote and relatively undisturbed. We popped out of the Laugharne Weekend and it was really worth it! Will visit again and spend more time there someday. Thanks for the rock stack tip. Nice pictures as well. A good work out as well, felt I'd deserved a drink in Brown's Bar (Dylan Thomas's old pub) afterwards. All in all a top place

That's brilliant, not seen these diagrams before. It's probably my favourite Cotswolds site, shame it get mountain bikes but they're following in Witts' hoofprints! thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

It looks like some exotic fungi from a distance, must make the trip to Dalby Forest when we finally arrive, the walks around the area which are somewhere on the web look good. moss Posted by moss

Belas Knap / Fieldnotes by ruskus

You can see it from Cleeve Hill, which is quite a distance away (but a little bit higher up than the barrow). The classic Cotswold longbarrow position is just off the top or crest of the hill, this one is fairly prominent from that direction but not visible really from anywhere else, which is why you come on it suddenly if you approach the way you did.

Setting, place and feeling - right on.

Notgrove / Fieldnotes by ruskus

Thanks for posting this. It's probably the nearest "well known" site near me that I've never been to, so these notes ought to make me make the effort. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
