I remember, years ago

my kids and me, here would go

With their Mum and picnic

we'd all sit

to eat the sarnies, fruit and sweet

then play a game of footbal kicks or chuck a few stones among the bricks

when we were tired, we'd sit and rest

watch birds, spot dragon flies and collect flowers for Mum

It don't seem too long since,

but that's thirty years gone and then some! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I guess the place is well overgrown and natural now Keith, is there still wild garlic in the woods towards the steppy-stones?

Lots of wild garlic, making the woods very fragrant, plus lots of empty beer cans and rubbish. Shame really.

Thanks mate

I love the name Keith

The wild garlic is a bit of a cult thing hereabouts, called Ramps by the locals derived I think from Ransoms, which is what we's furners knows 'em as.

As you say mate, shame about the beer cans.

All the best from ower here to ower there!

Hi guys, I looked up this for you *Jethro hope it is handy. While on Durham city a couple of years ago I 'triked' along the riverside path and spotted some local persons gathering the wild garlic, they use it for culinary purposes and reccomend it for warding off evil! St. Columbus is said to have planted it along the cathedral walks for that very reason! (It is claimed) My photo from then

Jolly good, have to shoot orf now, wheelchair service at 0930

Seeyaz laytor!

The River Blyth gorge at Bedlington could be stunningly beautiful if not for the locals fly-tipping and vandalising.

Thanks Jethro and Mike for the banter.

Truly bizarre ! Unbelievable Keith

So, I have seen a tag, Not selected for Google Earth which a number of people use I will use for such bizarre deselections. Feel free to join it and see if you can see why This one would be also like branded.

It won't do any good, but might make you feel better.

Although I think this one is wrongly rejected, I'm not going to go whingeing on the forum about it. I usually only map those I think stand a chance, but I have "chanced" it with a few, some successful some not.

I like the Tag idea and I have applied it to my rejects. When I went back and looked, I decided they get it mainly right. When I clicked your link I realised that Tags are case-sensitive, so I may duplicate the Tag with a lower case "n"

The rejection of your panorama is a bit puzzling but I did read somewhere that there is a suspected bias against them.
