My other half was looking through them all last night, there's some great images and really interesting stuff on there.

Interesting - thanks for drawing attention to this Alanw.

It's a shame that the image of "Malham Cove" isn't actually Malham Cove - just some random limestone pavement. Also the underground features seem to have been missed out, as is so often the case. Mind you, perhaps that's no bad thing in some ways . . . .
