Yesterday i finally managed to drive her down to Best of All lookout, which was still spectacular in spite of all the rain. On the way back we stopped off at Purling Brook Falls, which was spectacular BECAUSE of the rain.
And now on to the title of the post, Guinness replied to my protestations about the record attempt guidelines. I will need to do some detailed prodding but the response gives some reason to be positive about making the attempt under their auspices. It also contained this nugget- "GWR currently has no record holder for this category".
I think someone might need to tell this guy.
