I'd know I put some of this on the discussion thread but once again I would just like to thank my fellow "Tourists" for yet another enjoyable day out and to appologise for the 5 minute walk that was just a little longer and involved a bit of a backtrack (no pun intended).
Just in case anyone is wondering; we have removed nothing that we have found during our tours to date (save a singular lump of coal) only taking photos of any artifacts in situ as we go.
Having visited the sites we have so far I have to admit I'd love to be able to properly go back onto each site with tools and a metal detector and be allowed to clear the site and properly log and record what survives under the overgrowth, debris and detritus. It is very unlikely ever to happen but it would be good to properly look, explore and examine. To make a lasting record of what we have today from a line that closed 40+ years ago.
