  2. Edo in these parts there is a help your neighbour scheme with people getting in shopping etc for those who are isolating or struggling. Is there nothing like that you can call upon in Lpool?
  3. Thanks for the help folks. Just got the answer from the Dales Centre. An out of use water tank.

  5. For some reason I can't edit my post above, could be emoji/alcohol related. Reaching the end of our onion supply makes me think of the plight of the first European settlers in the USA. How difficult it must have been to get through that first winter. At this time of year we have some cabbages and kale remaining on the allotment, and we are still eating this year's crop of potatoes, and some late season apples, but there would have been a bleak few months ahead for those who didn't have a supermarket nearby. You would find it especially difficult to survive as a vegetarian.
  6. Lots of really quite bad things being reported here, well here's not such a bad thing ! We've reached the end of our home grown onions and have had to buy some from Sainsbury's. Managed to book a click and collect slot and a good thing it was too, as it coincided with their 25% off if you buy 6 bottles of wine. Stocked up on a variety of reds. 🍷
  7. According to a leaflet that you can download about Ashes Quarry, there are the remains of a gunpowder hut on the floor of the quarry. I guess this makes it more unlikely that my photo shows an explosives store.

  9. That puts things into perspective Betty, I've never had an experience as bad as that. We're trying to help support a friend who recently lost her husband after a long illness and who lives in a large rambling house with many issues, both real and imaginary. Lockdown has made face to face help impossible recently, but with some easing of the restrictions, my wife is travelling to see her in a public park today. A difficult call, you are expected not to travel unless for work etc, but this is a mental health issue. My wife once lost a work colleague due to suicide, and while she was
  10. Yes it has a similar appearance, but that's maybe a tad exotic for sleepy Stanhope Indeed, I know that there was an explosives store somewhere near, but this location is high above the old quarry and difficult to get to. If I get a positive identification from the Dales Centre I'll report back.
  11. Thanks Phil, I've downloaded that interesting document and will read it later. It nay well lead to further photo expeditions in one of my favourite parts of the world.
  12. Well I've always had a poor memory Betty and some dreams are best forgotten ! My wife remembers her dreams and is able to describe in detail what was involved, generally weird and unreal but not necessarily unpleasant.
  13. Possibly Ian, I've contacted the local Dales Centre to see if they can come up with a definitive answer. Recently sold a photo of Shittlehope burn, but they didn't use the name in the article !
  14. Thanks for the responses. I've searched for explosives store and bunker but nothing appropriate coming up. Covered reservoir maybe, but an unlikely shape. There was an ordnance depot near Waskerley but that's some distance away, while it's also inconveniently distant from the nearest quarry for an explosives store. Think I might try a local librarian or local history bod.
  15. Seen on Crawley Edge above Stanhope in Co. Durham. Looks like a wartime bunker but in a pretty remote location.
