I know it's free now, but ...

Is it REALLY worth the £42 odd it was previously pitched at?. :-(

Lol, but not bad for free though. :-D
Thanks. Fond memories.
Picked wild bilberries for our lunch outside with friends overlooking Jodrell Bank. Sigh...

On a supplemental note, got this on a deal a while back but perhaps the free but with ads may be of use to inspire.

Star Walk 2 is a great app and I was in awe of Jodrell Bank as a child - spent many a happy summer's day (remember those!?) in the meadows around there.

A friend was a student there and we had lunch outside and our dessert, wild bilberries we collected. She showed me around inside. Was intrigued about a SETI box in a corner and the issues of using a microwave at the wrong time.
Also did the caving tour under the Edge. That was amazing. Didnt get into pub at bottom of Edge from underneath though.

Do you mean the Crag Inn?


Had to doublecheck but no, its the Trafford Pub specifically from the well within its premises.
Downloaded this book and had a glimpse at it so far really impressed.
Nice find!
