old shaft note this is square not round !

me again this time in dark ,
note from dad:
This waterfall contains a lot of slippery rocks , i have removed photos and videos showing techniques to climb, cross and dry off afterwards, the path at the top also has a broken fence hidden in the long grass which has barbed wire and wire fencing sections- this will cause injury unless you are careful in the dark ,

Hordern: (13th century ‘handran’ and ‘haderan’). Possibly from the Anglo-Saxon ‘heorde’ meaning herd, and ‘hyrne’ meaning a nook or corner.
Belmont: “Fair or beautiful mountain”. Derived from Low Latin ‘bellus’ – fair, beautiful, and ‘montem’ – a mountain.
