That had me confused for a while...
Picnic on a flat shelf with a rope - in Mendip - umm??
But the lunch is a Stal, Cyano and activator, the rope is conservation tape
Which means it is probably HLIS :)

It's been on the to-do list for ages but I haven't got around to it yet, I'll put it slightly higher up the to-do list!

In the meantime, this one should be really easy if you recognise the ladder!

Ah good guess, but not quite! It's been a while since I was at waterwheel, but I think the steps there are uncoated metal as opposed to yellow.

Could it be Conning Tower in Fairy Cave Quarry?

Ah it's not I'm afraid, although they look like exactly the same rungs as in this image of Conning Tower Cave. How many more entrances like this can we think of? :-\

I did wonder that it looked a bit too deep for Conning Tower, but the whole at the bottom looked about right.
