Thats looks fun, in Wales, +6C heavy rain and heavy winds (Tv reported up to 70mph/112kph, though I don't believe that at all at the most in my area its 30mph/50kph, I'm lucky as I live in a valley we are somewhat sheilded from heavy winds like that)

Norge Which meal did you have?


Its a Memorial to the miners killed in an accident at the Coal mine that used on that site, the whole area to the left used to be a Coal mine (Where the playing field is now) it was re-developed in the 1970/1980's when the mine closed.

The Memorial, its a 'dram' used to carry the coal from under ground to the surface.

Don't smoke to avoid fire? What kind of gasses are those FRH giving off? Maybe I should read up on them. :shock:
