Frank,

You and me both.

Actually those shots of Ramper Pot are always interesting, not least because one of the fields is 'Kelbreck' and another is 'Knipperbone', both of which, I'm convinced, harbour all sorts of archaeological secrets. One of these days I'm going to arrange a dig in them.

Cheers Frank! One of these days, when I get the chance, I'm going to have to compile a 'Fylde and Wyre from the Air' book using these photographs.

Some more photos of the Wyre, taken Wednesday evening. Tell me if you've seen enough, there's plenty more!

Hi John,
I hadn't forgotten your request, I sent them direct to your email last night. I'll check what's happened to them, watch your inbox.

Frank.

Frank,

These photographs are brilliant, and I reckon I can honestly say that I'll never have seen enough.

Fantastic shots, Frank...if you look at the first shot showing Knott End, in the middle of the picture, to the right side, you can see a pond. Now, this must be the one we called "The Verona"...it was near the old Verona Cinema. The pond had a good head of Perch and Crucian Carp, we used to fish it as kids...it also had large freshwater Swan Mussels in it, this meant the water quality was good. It's nice to see it's still there. Can we pinpoint the findspot of The Hackensall Hoard in one of te pics?

Terry,

If my memory's working correctly, which it seldom is, this should be about right:

Terry,

I'm not completely sure. (To be honest, I'm never completely sure about anything...especially when I haven't had my fourth cup of morning coffee.) However, me and Michelle read in some transaction or other that the coins were found beneath a stone in a sand pit behind the hall, and that's the only sand pit we know of in that vicinity.

The late Headlie Lawrenson also confirmed the location to us, although, as always with these older discoveries, there appears to be a lack of documented proof to back it up. Headlie was usually reliable though.

On the other hand, if you know something I don't (which is a very distinct possibility, I must admit) then I'm open to suggestions...

Fourth river photo, the left one of the two roads running parallel at about 11 o'clock above the clump of trees, first block of houses. That's my house that is.

Here's a couple of press cuttings of the Hackensall finds. The find was also the subject of a BBC local radio transmission in either late 1926 or early 1927, but I can't find the papers on that. Ignore what Lieut. Barrow had to say, the coins were all Radiates dated AD253-AD273 and were largely of "rebel" emperors (Gallic Empire) [from David Shotter's paper on the subject]. Most of what Barrow had to say was fanciful if not a complete fairy story. We do have the exact OS grid reference, but am unsure if it's politic to advertise even though it's in the public arena for anyone who wants to research it. The coin shown is one of the Hackensall Hoard and is of Victorinos.
