Re: Favourite Walks and Rambles

I can recommend the leather Brasher/Berghaus Hillmaster boots, they are light but very supportive around the ankle. One of the features I really appreciate is the number of cleats for lacing them up, so many modern boots just have 2 pairs at the top and you have to battle to slacker the laces. I kno...

The logic is that a restaurant or pub should be a controlled and Covid secure environment whereas a house isn't. :smile: Should being the operative word.

Re: TODAY'S PENNINE WEATHER

Lovely illustration of what a difference 500ft can make Wendy. I this case to your advantage. Half an hour later we still have the fog..... It seems to be draining away rather than lifting! It usually comes up the Clough past us but not this morning. Just thinking that 20 years ago there were at le...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

There a quite a few little nooks in the walls of the barn for lamps, some have been filled in but you can see where they were. I'm sure there is a word for them but I can't think what it is! In fact, I think there are 2 in that photo either side of the window that have been filled in with blocks.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Digging last year's deep bed out of Sparky's stable, I did Dennis's yesterday. It's hard work pushing the wheelbarrow up to the muck heap! Once everything is cleaned out and swept I'll use the workshop vacuum to Hoover the dust and spider webs down from the walls, clean out the drinkers and feed buc...

He came to do a valuation of my cousin's better bits and pieces when the solicitor and I were clearing her house a number of years ago. He put a very low valuation on her Moorcroft collection!

We went to check out that end of the tunnel today. Nice 4 mile walk starting at Foulridge Wharf, past County Brook then through the fields down to Slipper Hill res, round the lower res and back.

Its still raining here, probably a good job we didn’t do that walk. Wet, misty and cold here Sue, it was a good move to delay our walk. I also have a sore foot which I twisted somehow on a walk yesterday, it's recovering now but it wasn't comfortable walking on uneven ground this morning. My younge...

I will do. I have heard from other people that the house was a gathering place for teenagers. Judith says that people came on Saturday nights, Mrs Newbould from Copy House played the piano and her mother baked meat and potato pie. :smile: What a lovely way to find the living history of your house. ...
