13 December 2006
Andy managed to make a dash up there to provide background information on rock art to those taking part in one of the organised walks from the bottom of the ill to the summit. (Despite having been given dodgy directions and very short notice due to a case of projectile vomiting babies in the house of Hob)
Despite having looked forward to the event for weeks, I thought I wasn't going to be able to get there, but was luckily given the chance to get up there for the last half hour of the lights. It was pretty darned good to see these motifs projected onto a surface I know is a prominent feature of the views of many of Northumberland's RA and other monuments.
Despite waht the promotional leaflet had inferred, there was no light show at Lordenshaw, so as part of the evening, my associates and I paid a nocturnal visit to the main panel and waved some torches at it. I regret the lack of a tripod, as the moon rose a lovely shade of orangey-red.
Possibly they'll do something similar next year, but probably at a different site.
Well done Northumberland National Park and Mr Supple. It was much appreciated.
