Re: Surprise encounter

Hi WW that is brilliant info, Walkham Step was always one of my favourites as less known about than others, amazing that you have the original book.

Re: Surprise encounter

Walkham Step, for sure, one of the first 20 boxes sited on the moor, but not included on the WH Smith letterbox leaflet. Very memorable use of an old fuse box... but who sited it there?? any idea ?
