Llangattock history - request for help
« on: October 08, 2019, 02:27:45 pm »
I'm working on a book with Rick Stanton. I'm writing up his explorations in Daren which led to the Restaurant at the End of The Universe etc.

I thought I had a copy of Clive Gardner's essential history of exploration in the mountain, but I can't find it. Could anyone send it to me - the bit about Daren in this period? 

cheers

You are probably already aware, but there’s accounts of Rick’s exploration in the Chelsea Llangattock Exploration Journal (CSS records 19) and in Farr’s Darkworlds

Hope this helps

I have a copy of Farr's "Darkworld" if it's any use to you.

If you are going to be at the BCA meeting this Saturday I can bring it for you - otherwise I can scan and send the relevant bit.

Clive is still a member on here so may see your post himself. He doesn't seem to have been active on the forum recently though.
