Thank you, folks.

Enjoyed that. Funnily enough many moons ago I used to go rock climbing at Farleton Fell. Small world indeed.

Thank you.

Most of these firms which allow folks to store / present their own photos leave vast spaces for the captions, I'm pleased to say. Normally I use Picassa, and occasionally Flickr.

Noones sheep eat anyone's taxes in this country any longer - subsidy is now paid per hectare, not per animal, so you could grow anything you like on it, it makes no difference.

But why assume you need to remove livestock entirely from the equation to achieve that? It is merely limiting the types of diversity, hence your diversity isn't as diverse as it could be.
