More Sherwood shenanigans

The Mild in the Country crew went to Sherwood Forest and had a fantastic day looking for Robin Hood :)

Some lovely pics of a few cool trees we saw today

The MITC bunch went to Castleton today with our lovely neighbors G and D, we saw the Devils Arse and Peveril Castle plus the fantastic Derbyshire countryside.

After Castleton we went to Ladybower reservoir and Derwent Valley, a great day was had by all, well worth a visit if you’re in the neighbourhood.

Plus PB has some memorable ‘planking’ moments :)

Pictures from the RAF Firbeck memorial that took place today, click here for more details.

Tucked away in the south-east corner of South Yorkshire, a short distance south of the former pit village of Maltby and near the historic Roche Abbey, lies the little, unassuming disused airfield of RAF Firbeck. Opened before World War 2, it was the private airfield for the nearby Firbeck Hall, a large residential Country Club for the very well-heeled in society. Requisitioned in WW2, the airfield was the home to Army Co-Op Squadrons but also doubled up as a Relief Landing Ground for RAF Hucknall and latterly (1944 onwards) was under the administration of 21 Group (Training), which saw a limited amount of gliding take place until closure in 1948.

The principal resident Squadrons, 613 (Lysanders), 654 (Auster I) and 659 (formed here with Auster IIIs) were largely used for local duties with nearby Army and Home Guard units. However, with the invasion of mainland Europe, 645 Sqn and 659 Sqn were moved out and closely followed the advancing Allied forces acting as air observation for artillery units, winning two DFCs in the process.

Clun Greenman
Hi all Greenman fans, here is a papertoy for you to make. Its the Clun Greenman, click picture to get the template.

The Clun Green Man is different and special to Clun. Great trees border his cloak, their branches interlacing across his chest and, uniquely, his leaf face is crowned with deer antlers. This indicates our union with the green vegetation, which surrounds us so abundantly, and with animal life too. Deer move secretly through the woods, which clothe our hills. You may not often see them, but like the spirit of nature himself you know they are there.

If you make a Clun Greenman, send it here so we can all see it.
