    That's significantly less information than we need. :D

    My little site needs some visitors at some point in the year. I'll be down there in February, as some of you know, plus several other weekends. If anyone wants to some sit round a south Northants fire, just let me know. You'll be more than welcome.

    Should help any addicts that can't deal with these "few and far between" Dartmoor meets :p

    No problem fellas.
    I know it's a bit of a trek for most (around the 180-200 mile mark, from Devon), but it would be a nice change of scenery. Plus you'd love to have a nosy around the bunker complex Skate :)

    Little teaser of said bunkers...

    Plus there's a few pillboxes too.

    These things are very hush hush lol. I've been on there a few times. They have pictures of this place on there somewhere. Not allowed to divulge the name/location to the general public (one of the conditions of use), but there are loads of interesting buildings about.

    As you can tell by the photos, i went in the middle of the night...alone...and it was a little spooky, with the wind blowing over the entrance hatch thingie. Will need wellies if you want to walk around the command bunker though, as it's got several inches of water in it most of the year.

    Yeah, well up for a nose around old military buildings. Have some interesting ones round my way. A lot have been closed up as bat roosts now though.
    Happy to do the driving as well.

    Arry has told me he hopes to come to the Moorland bake off - but told me not to tell you! He spent a number of years in his younger days as a chef, but don't tell him I told you - wouldn't want anybody to think I can't keep a secret.

    I might have to visit Northants too but I'll go incognito to check-out the military situation - ssshhhh, don't tell Adam. I've already dyed my mop-head grey, which should make a great 'syrup' and I'll black out a front tooth and dress in jeans - that should be good enough to fool Katie, let alone Adam! Skate: As part of my cunning plan I need you to lose a certain person enroute. Rick: Please PM me some jokes - I need a repertoire or my cover will be blown. Message to self: Buy chainsaw oil.

    :D

    I'm hoping to get a board meeting of Dartmoor Ltd before March but can't make this weekend - dammit!
