Hi, Welcome to my blog site, I have been researching many places which I have found of interest and which aren’t always included in Tourist information centres.




Hi Debbie,
Thanks for the comments and I am glad that you find the website interesting. Unfortunately I don’t have much space left on the website now so one of these days I am going to have to call it a day.
Regards Gary

What a fascinating website. We came here a decade ago and thought that we’d visited a lot of the area but you’ve inspired us withall the places we haven’t visited and how little we have actually seen. We shall be out and about a lot more come Spring.

is there any chance of getting the password to read the blog about the hauntings around the sandbach stretch of the m6. This seems to be protected but other posts aren’t

Oh, I ended up here because my dad took slides of us kids with Grandad Hine at Rockhall in the late 60’s. I was just scanning them.

Wow! Very interesting, thanks, Gary!

I’m going to The Roaches for the Winter Solstice this month, to visit Dad’s grave at Rushton Spencer, Lud’s Church, Hanging Stone, Flash, Tunnicliffe country, etc.. Will be reading your posts for insight!

Thanks for your comments, I hope you enjoy the rest of the website. Its nice to know that someone appreciates what I am doing.

I discovered your blog doing research on the Coombes Rocks. I enjoyed reading about your experience and seeing your photos very much! I’m part of the Coombs family in the USA who has an interest in genealogy. I was aware of this area, but I always look for more information.
I think your blog is fantastic and will be exploring your other posts too.
I love the computer age, because it allows people to connect across great distances. I wanted to comment to let you know I appreciate and enjoyed my visit to your blog.
Sincerely, CC


Hi Andressa,
Its nice to know that someone out there enjoys reading about the places I discover and write about. When the weather improves here I will start getting out and about again and look for other places of interest.

Hi, Gary.
I´ve just found your blog and I just loved it! That´s exactly what I was looking for, a site which I could know such incredible British places by their natural and historical aspects. Thanks for sharing your expeditions and keep them on!
