On CavingUK, they have a couple of threads on various caving areas where a photo is posted and people have to guess what cave / location in cave the photo is off.

The first one to guess then gets to post a new photo, and so on.

I like the idea of this and so here goes, my first one...

I've been thinking of this for a while but never got around to it. Nice one Mike! Thumb Up

I have no idea though....
all I could think of was "right click", "properties" but not even that gave me any clues Laugh

Were I a proper hardcore mine explorer then clearly the correct answer would be any or a combination of all three of the following: Smile

a) an outright lie
b) I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you
c) no answer

It would have helped if I had read the thread subject "North Pennines" wouldn't it Laugh

Somewhere off the beaten track in Caplecleugh?

Edit - just seen your last post Mr Mike

Not a clue where, as I've never been down Brownley Hill. I adopted the armchair explorer's approach of methodically trawling through your photo album LaughLaughTime-consuming but quick enough, as it turned out. I'll post a pic shortly. IP: 95.145.215.186

Here we go, but not in the North Pennines. It's somewhere else.

It is west of the Pennines. North of Wales, south of Scotland, and not in the Lakes. IP: 95.145.215.186
