Odd - it's a really big image for me that overflows my monitor screen

Global Moderator Comment I added a 'width' to the 'img' tag to make it show as a smaller size. See https://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=19799.0 If you click on the image, it will show in the larger size.

..... hmmm. But the image still doesn't display for me either. However - if I go into "Quote" for the original post then I can see the image tags that the OP used with the URL correctly placed between them. If I then copy the URL into a new browser tab then it displays fine......

You're right Mike. It doesn't open in Firefox but does in Edge.

I guess it's a bit late to say I just opened it in Firefox and the image is fine!

Tried to find this cave on OS Explorer Map 139.  Nearest I got was NGR SS 46 24.  Can anybody give me a better NGR?

It's in the 47 24 square, but my camera GPS didn't pick up position.
