    Fantastic Terry, best vid for a while, for me.

    I know of wells that are revered that go back well beyond the “dark ages”.
    Rarely archaeological evidence can trace them back several thousand years, like the one i'll be camping by in Wiltshire in a couple of weeks.

    It'll be a sad time when the youth no longer take time to bless the wells, long may it continue, and your vids.

    Geoff.

    None left in the peaks i know of mate, those that aren't lined in later years disappear due to movement of the land, erosion and changing landscapes due to soil changes etc.
    It's much flatter where i'm heading, the land doesn't change much really, shame you can't join me, it would really be an experience for you, i have a spare seat. !

    I know mate, make hay whilst the sun shines.
    I must get you there one day though, it'll blow your mind, totally.
    I'll be heading back down there maybe August/September time, bring Sue, neither of you will be disappointed, i promise.

    Twigs.
