lead swinging

Went for an interesting walk on Sunday (10th) - started here at Ubley Warren Farm and walked through Velvet Bottom (ooer) and back round past Charterhouse to where we started. All very invigorating - nice sunny day, and lots of interesting industrial archaeology. Apparently the area was used for lead mining and smelting back in Roman times, and on and off up to the Victorian era. Photos available here - if anyone's looking a bit peaky blame it on the several bottles of wine we had at Jo's place the night before.

Interestingly I've had a cold all week - at least I assume that's what it is. Could be lead poisoning...!
