Arrow Rope & Peg

British Coalfields..
Basic surveyance has occurred since humans built the first large structures..The prehistoric monument at Stonehenge (c. 2500 BC) was set out by prehistoric surveyors using peg and rope geometry..In ancient Egypt, a rope stretcher would use simple geometry to re-establish boundaries after the annual floods of the Nile River..The almost perfect squareness and north-south orientation of the Great Pyramid of Giza, built c. 2700 BC, affirm the Egyptians' command of surveying.. The Groma instrument originated in Mesopotamia (early 1st millennium BC).. Its coal seams were formed from the vegetation of tropical swampy forests in the Carboniferous period over 300 million years ago..When I asked you to build me a wall..I was rather hoping that instead of just dumping the bricks in a pile you might have found time to cement them together...

Sellafield is a nuclear fuel reprocessing and decommissioning site, close to the village of Seascale on the coast of the Irish Sea in Cumbria, England..The site contains several nuclear waste stores, with the Low Level Waste Repository 6 km away at Drigg.. The UK's National Nuclear Laboratory also has its Central Laboratory on the Sellafield site..The Douglas Sea Scale is a scale which measures the height of the waves and also measures the swell of the sea..ROF Sellafield was constructed in 1942 on the Sellafield industrial site as a Second World War Royal Ordnance Factory..After the war, the Sellafield site was briefly in the ownership of Courtaulds for development as a factory, but was reacquired by the Ministry of Supply to adapt the site for the production of materials for nuclear weapons, principally plutonium, and construction of the nuclear facilities commenced in September 47..In 54, ownership of Windscale Works passed to the UKAEA..Calder Hall, first connected to the grid on 27 August 56..Sellafield has several radioactive waste stores..At its peak, the Sellafield Visitors' Centre attracted an average of 1,000 people per day..An estimated 200 kilograms (441 lb) of plutonium has been deposited in the marine sediments of the Irish Sea.. Windy Miller lives in Colly's Mill, a windmill which has its own particular rhythmic sound when turning..The scale is very simple to follow and is expressed in 1 of 10 degrees... you wanna go for a ride?.Get in and I'll drive you home..Do you remember when we were first manacled together?.Why don't you have another vat of wine, dear?.Don't forget the menu...
