Re: Duffield Bank Quarry Tunnel

This is the southernmost rock tunnel, not Tennis Ground. Howard Clayton gets this wrong and Smithers repeats it. It is the only genuine tunnel that was needed as it cuts through a spine of rock. The other are all cut and cover. I can speak with some authority because I have been there a number of ti...

Re: Avalon Line

Thanks Colin
It seemed unlikely because dates of 2013 are mentioned and email us for details- no email provided. I know Howard did stuff with Steve Bennet but he is out of action at the moment. I will try Howard on the phone number which turns out to be a fax line!

I really think Steve needs to contact his customers and let them know some delivery times etc or offer refunds. I put this on the site because he will not answer queries sent to his email. I appreciate the pressures of small business but running one myself know that my customers would not put up wit...

I wonder where Steve is too. I paid for some goods on 11th December but had no order acknowledgement and no replies to my emails to Steve. Perhaps if he reads this he can let me know what is happening

It looks good. Had a look at the website and am none the wiser. I do not understand what it is made of and your webpage suggests it is very fragile. Also, I can find no prices and there is a suggestion that different materials may be ordered? Please make an old man very happy and tell me what your p...

15" gauge as defined by Heywood was the smallest gauge independent of the human body moving around and unbalancing it. He regarded anything smaller as unstable and therefore outside the description. He also noted the 18" as being larger and also outside his terms. Since he coined the phras...
