    If I was in his shoes, I wouldn’t have wanted to go through the same scenario again.

    he did actually apologise that it was missing in this photo πŸ™‚

    He’s slipping. That was way too easy! It’s on the opening credits to Countryfile…

    i must be getting better at working out which ones are going to be tough to locate. soon as i saw this one i though you lads/lasses will get it pretty quick.

    That’s about 100 feet back from the last one, with a bit of snow added.

    youre right, nice one, my ‘cotswolds thread’ suggested maybe moreton in the marsh, but youre spot on its stratford. so……..no 6 could also be that station and he maybe never went to moreton at all.

    good work πŸ™‚

    rascal, i dont care whats in the pic, i just like astounding him with ‘my’ knowledge πŸ™‚

    At the risk of being a hotel room geek, he’s staying in either Stag Lodge or the White Hart in Stow-on-the-Wold. Not sure which room though, both next to each other.

    Gibson Knott, it’s on the ridge between Helm Crag and Calf Crag. Harrison Stickle is the prominent bump on the skyline.

    Second one of the four is Calf Crag.

    so do i understand it that 2 is different to 3? so no2 is calf crag and no 3 is gibson knott?

    no idea with the others?

    thanks πŸ™‚

    Yes. The first one is an indeterminate point on the ridge, I think it’s around here

    Number 2 is Calf Crag

    Number 3 is Gibson Knott

    The drystone wall could be anywhere! But it’s made from quarried slate rather than field stones.

    The picture davidtaylforth posted is also Calf Crag.

    The crag behind and right of the person in the first three shots is Deer Bield Crag, you can see fresh scree beneath the LH side which is the result of a huge rockfall in 1997 – it was effing huge, about 40 metres high, 20 metres wide and 10+ metres in depth.

    High up on Whitburn path up Helvellyn – birk moor or something like that. Judging/guessing by the elevation., thought Seat Sandal at first but wrong angle I think

    This is the view from Birk Side

    You can’t see any of the Helvellyn/Fairfield range from the base of Deer Bield Crag so it can’t be that far back. Here’s another view from the summit of Calf Crag

    I meant to say that Davidtaylforth’s shot is from Gibson Knott not Calf Crag.
