Hi all went for a walk up around Minions yesterday and had a good look around many shafts which I do often and a couple of them had without doubt show signs of movement ie grass around cones torn and 3" gap halfway down cone etc etc just wondered if any one else had spotted much ? IP: 2.24.48.187

Lots of things have been opening up. I've got to do a run around all my "things which are on the move, but not opened up yet". I reckon there are a couple of likely candidates.

I was at Portwrinkle earlier and the "cafe seeking retrospective planning permission - allegedly" carpark is spectacularly on the move! It will take more than a couple of hillbillies with a super-piledriver to sort that out! Teach them to build on the Portwrinkle fault breccia and expect it to stay where it is.

I think the changes in the weather, especially rainfall patterns, in recent years have a lot to do with it.

The whole issue of ad-hoc car parks in the SW is going to continue to be a problem, for a variety of reasons.
