    in Massachusetts (about 12 miles away from Monday's horrors), I only get to see Salisbury Plain and the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District if I go 'home' to see the few remaining relatives!

    You will enjoy the contrast between the 'Dark Peak' (gritstone) and the 'White Peak' (Carboniferous limestone)

    Oh, and before I write a diary on it, you'd better have fun with Cresswell Crags on the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border. This stunning little area has interesting geology...but fascinating archaeology!

      you sent me a treasure! Why don't you write a diary on this, because I sure would be tempted to if I knew this locale as well as you. Fascinating region; wonderful geology. And only folks with rocks in their heads can even think along such lines, shortfinals. Sure glad I got to know this side of you. Of course, I am a die-hard Anglophile, but at least you won't have to put up with me over there driving on the wrong side of the road (damn Yankees)!!!

      Meanwhile, I am going to spend more time studying what you just sent and this area I am only getting to know better the second time around (since I have acquired my passion and interest and credentials in this subject matter over the past 30 or so years). And I love archeology as much as I do geology, so all in all I am a happy camper given what you have tasked me to learn more about.

      All the best and God save your Queen. She's priceless!

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
