yup - in about 20 years, the plaque will be removed as the forest establishes itself then the area is given back over to the landowner, though still accessible as it's surrounded by footpaths etc

i can have my ashes there too when the time comes, as well as the dogs she loved so much...

bit further north of us, though i think there is one round that way

it's just north of anglezarke reservoir, near chorley - a lot of these forests are in country parks etc and i wanted one that was wilder and untamed (cant think why....)

I thought about her a lot lately. In the discussions we had, she seemed to have a much higher opinion of me than I have myself. I've worked a lot on that recently, and she's still helping me. Which is kinda awesome.

You might find that sentiment is more widely spread than you imagined! :cheers:
