Hi Wil,


Having traveled quite entensively over a period of years, I now look for something new and exciting to challenge my 61 years!

I found just that at the top of the Marquess' Column.

At ground level, no wind, at the top, a gale. Please close the door it says on the notice. But it doesn't say - be prepared to be terrified until you're a jibbering shadow of your normal self!

I totally agree that this is an experience everyone should experience, even if it's only once in your lifetime!

Hi Steve,

Been there and done it. I have what I regard as being a fluctuating nerve that I can never depend on to be appropriate in timing.

I once saw the Red Arrows Fly below me along the Menai Staits. Not bad.

The real challenge is to shut your eyes and walk around the column platform ten times. Dare you next time.

Happy Christmas

Wil
