Thanks Tery. According to local stories this artificial "cave" was used by the local eccentric lord for having wild parties! Happy New Year to you. Best wishes - Jim

How VERY interesting Jim. Despite living not 30 miles from here I had no idea these where there or had been anywhere near it. Oh to be young again but moving through life at a slower pace. How much more I would have seen!

Many thanks and a happy new year - Jethro

Alireza Javaheri - Thanks very much for your like and comment. Best wishes - Jim

Jethrohoyt - Thanks Jethro. We only got to know about these from an old trekking/mountaineering friend of mine who moved to live only about 5 miles from these intriguing "caves".

I'm afraid life is too short no matter what age we are! The balance between taking things slowly (perhaps more inwardly) and outwardly experiencing places and events is always at odds. I remember meeting a guy in Edale who was about to walk the Pennine way. He saw that I was reading an obscure book that he'd always wanted to read, but never got round to it. He almost tore his hair out in frustration saying "There's so much in life and no time to experience it"!

Happy New Year - Jim

Trouble is its only as we start to run out do we care about the time Jim.

Nice story - was it me?

If we were on facebook Jethro, I'd do a "Like" for that last comment of yours! Don't suppose there's any chance of you getting early retirement to gain some more time?!

I guess you may have read the story above about this placenik. I hate to imagine what strange goings on, went on here! Cheers - Jim
