Hi pal, looked like you really enjoyed the mooch! Wish my Dad took me in a mine when I was your age 🙂 Anyway, here’s a link to a picture of Rivington Pike circa 1910. (Note it is already out of use and the ground level, it’s eroded a lot in the last century hasn’t it?) http://www.boltonmuseums.org.uk/collections/local-history/social-history-images/200299/imageFile Keep up the good work. on underground in Wales

watching some birds

hmm…. someone thinks that using a 4X4 is fun but it ruins the surface and destroys the environment

This is safe !

running across the grass

looking for water – the sphagnum moss is for drinking it from

Coal – one of the signs of the old mines ,

found some old iron

I use a technique to get feeling back into my hands after getting them wet

this old mining area has been destroyed by the water authorities for no known reason yet they allow 4X4 drivers to destroy the environment ?

The UN has nominated April 2nd as World Autism Awareness Day – a day for people across the globe to come together to raise awareness of autism and the effect it has on families.
We are going out today for a quick run to Winter Hill area ,
I am going to School tomorrow but will be talking about Autism in the class,

please have a look at some of the following web links for me 


This is what I can do can you? have a look around at just some of things I can do !

I have lots of interests though we do things in the safe way
remember

Don’t just run or walk Explore 

thanks for taking a look Jake !¬
