Newish book, cave, mines catacombs, dark matter research - an excellent read or Audible listen from an elegant writer.

His other books are also worth a read Smile

We took him into a Windypit while he was researching the book. Sadly we didn't make the final cut Sad IP: 90.196.47.223

I got bought one of his books a while back about 'hidden ways' or some such.

It was a good read and inspired me to walk the 'Broomway' in Essex which I hadn't heard of otherwise. It was a suitably eerie and mildly disturbing experience on a somewhat murky day. With the tide coming in it was akin to walking on a mirror in a cloud with absolutely no reference for orientating yourself. I can see why people have come unstuck over the years doing it - take a compass or better yet a GPS!
