Rollin' and Tumblin'.

By jonwebber
Just across the A66 from Threlkeld is a village called Birkett's Mire, and behind that village is a worked out quarry, now used as a mining museum and the home of the Vintage Excavator Society. I kid you not, they have excavators almost as old as the shovel. And also the neccessary rust . . .
The title is shared with a song, I believe by S. Splurge, from quite some time ago.

What an excellent discovery you have unearthed here.
It should be right up there with the discovery of Penicillin I reckon !!
Super shot.
