Hey, don't drop out just yet!
Folk aren't agin you just because they had to point out that there are all sorts of things going on in the Peak - SSSIs and Scheduled Monuments and things, as well as carefully nurtured relationships with some of the landowners - that make getting permission to dig a very sensible option.
The only thing is, they do have a strict policy of no foul language on here. It does help to keep things OK for when the wife looks over my shoulder to see what I'm looking at...
There are some great people on here. Hang in and get to know them.
