above links are for the Quarry

note from dad : deep soft wet snow , with slush for the rest of the route , at high traffic areas -there was wet ice meaning very slippy conditions, mist conditions with rain – cold wet  penetrating type weather , Jake changed into over trousers and changed Jakes gloves the rest of Jake was dry apart from the last 1 mile when the slush became around 6 inches and  went  over into  Jakes waterproof socks, as this was a downhill section and we were near the car we didn’t need to put dry socks on.

Note from Dad :what we found was a bell pit (had the tell tale signs of this type of mine and signs of other mines following a line ,we will revisit the area without snow – the wet snow was deep – knee deep for me, as its not clear we had the correct site due to the snow covering most of the area up,

note from dad Dad:  Hmmm……….. I hope this wasn’t a person , in the Czech republic before they go on the ice they wait  and only if the temperature has been below   -5  for 5 days before they take the risk,
