  1. I discovered this monument on my walk near Bradfield on Monday and asked for information online...pretty soon several people had done the research. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10159264587762818&set=gm.2434741123440940&type=3&eid=ARCzoxdvJA8NV6kU7jt5p7eXb2rt7fUyoAS9pIqGBdHHkuXBngXNuJHZ8tZTIhnzziKWeL_CijkuYiW9&ifg=1
  2. I enjoyed a lovely walk yesterday with some spectacular views of the city centre in the distance....also an observation relevant to the changing boundary between Sheffield and Derbyshire: https://peakwalking.blogspot.com/2018/11/ecclesall-road-whirlow-bridge.html
  3. I took quite a few photos yesterday...some from right down in the reservoir: https://peakwalking.blogspot.com/2018/11/moscar-fairholmes-yorkshire-bridge-and.html
  4. I deliberately chose a route on my walk yesterday to get as close as possible to some of these spots: http://peakwalking.blogspot.com/2018/06/lodge-moor-bamford-thornhill-aston-and.html
  5. It's a surprisingly long list considering how much I enjoy walking: http://peakwalking.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/things-that-annoy-me-when-im-walking.html I'm wondering if anyone has anything to add to the list?
  6. My walk yesterday, staying within the City of Sheffield but still enjoying the snow: http://peakwalking.blogspot.co.uk/2018/01/abbeydale-whirlow-ringinglow-and.html
  7. I had a bit of an argument with a farmer near Damflask Reservoir yesterday because I inadvertently strayed from the footpath...which wasn't marked on the OS map - he was rude and aggressive...and a bit strange. My blog report here: http://peakwalking.blogspot.co.uk/2017/11/moscar-low-bradfield-holdworth-and.html I'm wondering what other walkers' experiences have been under similar circumstances.
  8. Why do I think I deserve compensation? Well, the fact that the service wasn't provided. I don't drive, but as a driver you are required to pay road tax; if you're not satisfied with the service you receive maybe you should re-evaluate your relationship with the state.
  9. I'm a frequent user of public transport. The buses are unreliable and take forever to get to your destination; 90 minutes from Doncaster to Sheffield for example. As for the trains, well Sheffield doesn't really have a network at all; the quality of the service between Sheffield and Leeds or Manchester is the worst between any two cities of a similar size in Europe. Sheffield is also the largest city in Europe without any electric trains.
  10. I support the introduction of a basic income. I'm disabled and find it very difficult to get work; a basic income would mean that I could take whatever work I could find, no matter how poorly paid or precarious...and it would do away with the stigma of having to rely on benefits.
  11. I was stuck for 2 and a half hours on a train yesterday morning on the approach to Midland Station. It ruined my day and it looks like I'm only going to get a fiver in compensation. I'm wondering what other bad experiences people have endured. I'm convinced that public transport is particularly bad in South Yorkshire.
  12. Probably because there isn't a bus stop at The Grouse.
  13. Thanks scoobz, I think I'll wait until the spring. I quite liked it as it was though.
  14. I'm just wondering how the felling of the plantation in the Burbage Valley is going. I've not been there for a couple of months and might go take a look soon if access isn't blocked.
