I’ve been looking for that for ages! Where is it from?

Interesting to think that South Devon rivers were tributaries of the Rhine.

but I think the source is National Geographic.

Me too. We did one of our walks along the cliffs behind Noss Mayo yesterday, which according to the map was over a hundred miles from the sea. What would we have seen on what would presumably have been rolling plains?

The baffles were originally routed for the Coles supertweeters, but got took off to try out on something else. I filled the holes with bits of cardboard mailing tube. Here they are being put back in again.
