tim hitchins: hi Nigel its a view from Arncliff Cragg, looking towards Otley, the rocks are just past Pool in Walfdale going towards Harrogate, it was wet and cold and can you believe a lad and his girlfriend joined me on the top and he produced a ring and went down on one knee and proposedsmile couldn't believe it, snapped it and plan to show it, i couldn't have got a bet on that happening.
