Cheers Johnny, I've looked at these hills for a year now without the tiniest drop off in the wonder I feel each time I stand on a summit taking them in....long may it stay that way :wink:

Thanks LH, I used to have an office in York, I think the city being underwater in places was an annual event :roll: real shame about the rain though, it seems to have been a really crappy year, maybe you'll get a double summer next year :D
