Cool!

Very cool, Win. Naturally I expect you'll bring home any rock fragments you find in the vicinity... just in case.

I hope you toasted the monument with some Falling Stone bitter. That is why you went to Wold Newton, isn't it?

I envy you guys, The monument is much bigger than I expected. Cheers! Have a Falling Rock ale for me!

(And for God's sake get some decent curry while you are there!)

We had fantastic curry, twice: once in Bath and once in Caterham, which is where the Spiteris live (40 minutes south of London).

We had Falling Stone bitter, and I brought back 4 bottles of different varieties from the Wold Top brewery, which fortunately made it safely back with us.

We touched fragments of the Wold Cottage (Wold Newton) meteorite at the British Museum of Natural History in London, and took plenty of pics of the full meteorite (Paul Spiteri arranged a special meeting to see the meteor since it is not currently on display; it will go back on disply in 2011 or 2012 and will be what the call the "hero" meteor in the new display, which I thought was appropriate). I'll put up these pics in a later post.
