    Nig the dig replied to a thread glare in Manticore
    I almost bought one but then thought, No. I knew I'd regret itif I didn't wait for a Manticore. Happy with the Manticore just not the price tag. Lack of wifi etc.

    500 years would only take you to the 16th century. Early Roman bridges were wooden. Although they later made bridges of stone you would probably need to dredge the river to find evidence of cement...

    Kevin the dedicated poor quality headphones and the lack of a headphone module has put me off buying a Manticore. You could see from the launch that they were the usual very poor quality item with...

  1. Hi Brian
    yes, booked a hotel. (Anglebury House)
    250 for 5 nights on booking.com that doesn't sound good - although I did like the other farm. Hopefully the field which was pasture might be opened up as that was good the year before.
    Hope you change your mind, if not all the best and hopefully we will meet up next year.

  2. Hi nick hope all is good with you and enjoying your retirement,
    your not going to be camping this year are you after what you said last year thought it was going to be bed and breakfast 😂😂 not sure whether to do this year they only seem to have Norden and Ringstead which as you know was not good. The other farm where we found some Roman coins and the women who found the gold coin would be worth a visit. All the best might change my mind and meet up in the end , be lucky with your digging regards Brian from Bournemouth
