Hi folks. Im new to this website. Is there a search facility on here which deals with keywords or is location-specific? I want a quick reference to Flintshire/North Wales /Cheshire/Wirral area. Thanks. :)

I noticed depending on which mobile device i was using sometimes the site came up a bit odd or the phone didnt let me tap very well on the search button but if your looking at being a regular or even just for the hell of it add this url as a bookmark to your phone and makes life a bit easier for it :)

Hi Rob,

I am from this part of the country and also new to this forum.

In my experience I try not to be specific in regards to locations in case the information falls into the wrong hands. So it depends on what level of "specific" you are looking for - most "well known" site coordinates can be obtained from google. However, the more "hidden gems" tend to be kept under wraps. I remember seeing a post on here for this very topic - like myself I have to be convinced that somebody asking for info has the same exploration ethics.

I have a few friends in these's area and we do share info - I am sure if you get into an area specific network this will be your best tool.

Ciao for now :)

The search bar does work, however a lot of people may not put place name (or not exact as search) so u miss stuff.
For example when I was first on I searched all my local town names, then surrounding counties, but even now I am finding local stuff (by chance) that I missed!
