I have heard of sandals used many times before due to their draining properties  :lol:

The notorious Mole, of the Welsh Mines Society, used to explore mines barefoot. Here he is in action at Nant y Mwyn a decade ago.
I'd pay to see someone go barefoot in parry's mountain  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mendip / W. Stanton's Map of Mendip Depressions
« Last post by shanks on July 27, 2021, 09:04:05 am »
Willie Stanton's famous map on which he recorded hundreds of Mendip karst depression features (many now lost to farming or development) has been made available by the MCRA for viewing as a Google Earth overlay:


Big thanks to Tom Harrison for the painstaking work of digitising and geo-referencing these maps for us.

If you have Google Earth visit http://www.mcra.org.uk/stanton_maps/Mendip_Maps_Stanton.kml to view the map; it's also now included as part of the full Google Earth cave registry browser.

Mike spotted a surface feature which looked like a blocked rift.  Off we trotted to have a look - I instantly dismissed it as full of mud and pointless.  Mike however gets his phone out and pokes it down a hole and declares there's cave to be found!

He's certainly got an eye for new caves!

Good effort and good name by the way ;D

£20 a roll is cheap. Back in 1961 a roll of Kodak slide film was 36 shillings including developing. An average week's wage would buy about 5 rolls of film back then, compared to about 25 rolls now.

As for the cameras, anything decent was stratospherically expensive. I used to slobber over a second hand £56 Rolliflex in the local camera shop. Mind you, everything was expensive in the '60s.
