I visited John and Margaret Chapman last week,
they told me they (CHERT) had found a motor bomb in Velvet bottom
which was exploded by the bomb squad.

There was something to that effect in the Cheddar Valley Gazette this week. There was also an incendary (spelt?) device found in the woods between Tuttors Hill and Batts Coombe Quarry. I have wandered through those many times, though a corroded tube thing on the ground wouldn't mean anything to me.
