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

Italian Night ,

we had Four seasons Pizza -Pizza quattro stagioni
Melon and Prosciutto
Spaghetti carbonara  or Pasta alla carbonara
I have been to Italy we drove from Prague and stayed near Venice

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pizza
http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/type-of-dish/italian/pizza/four-seasons-pizza.html

“Lazio style: Pizza in Lazio (Rome), as well as in many other parts of Italy, is available in two different styles: (1) Take-away shops sell pizza rustica or pizza al taglio. This pizza is cooked in long, rectangular baking pans and relatively thick (1–2 cm). The crust is similar to that of anEnglish muffin, and the pizza is often cooked in an electric oven. It is usually cut with scissors or a knife and sold by weight. (2) In pizza restaurants (pizzerias), pizza is served in a dish in its traditional round shape. It has a thin, crisp base quite different from the thicker and softer Neapolitan style base. It is usually cooked in a wood-fired oven, giving the pizza its unique flavor and texture. In Rome, a pizza napoletana is topped with tomato, mozzarella, anchovies and oil (thus, what in Naples is called pizza romana, in Rome is called pizza napoletana).
Types of Lazio-style pizza include:
Pizza romana (in Naples): tomato, mozzarella, anchovies, oregano, oil;
Pizza viennese: tomato, mozzarella, German sausage, oregano, oil;
Pizza capricciosa (“capricious pizza”): mozzarella, tomato, mushrooms, artichokes, cooked ham, olives, oil (in Rome, prosciutto raw ham is used and half a hard-boiled egg is added);
Pizza quattro stagioni (“four seasons pizza”): same ingredients for the capricciosa, but ingredients not mixed;” taken from  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pizza

 I had to find my way up to the two lads I was using map and compass
Note from Dad
weather was very gusty although clear driving rain/Hail  in the gusts  3c with high wind chill due to wind and rain , Some of the Gusts measured 45mph , wind 15 to 20 mph, Jake was struggling to move against the wind on top of the two lads ,

Two Lads – I was testing extra layers of clothing tonight , the hail was not nice !
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hail

 

me navigating from point to point , I found the post ! I was on the way from the two lads to Crooked Edge Hill but the wind was very strong and we were facing the wind and rain which made this difficult,

 the weather was getting back now we were lower down I had to find my way without paths from crooked edge hill back to the road !

 I am making sure that the red needle (N) is kept between two dots, this is difficult sometimes it take practice , my dad just watches me do this and trusts me to get to the place we need to get to !
