Thought I'd do this thread so people could discover if they live near each other and also could make meet ups possible.

I live in London, south of the river, for those of you who have visited London and find it a bit uncivilised, it gets quite a bit more cultured when you cross to the south side of the river.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out

Sure is, I guess getting flint is no problem for you it's lying about the ground everywhere. I went up to Castle Acre to get some flint and I also picked some up of the ground during my visit to Grimes Graves. The Grimes Graves stuff was astonishing quality.

Yes it is a bit like that. it also helps being in the building trade. a lot of people i work with know I attemp a bit of knapping so i try to get some though then. the best bit come out of the ground from the ground works. I also build with the stuff so i have about a ton of reclaimed flint in my front garden so if any of you are in suffolk give me a look up. it free to anyone who can take it.

As known, I live in West Lothian, Scotland. A place definately NOT known for its supply of flint.

Not sure if this thread is still active but I used to live in SE London and now am enjoying the lifestyle of living 7 miles from Lands End Very Happy the ONLY thing I miss about London is finding out there was flint all along the Thames and I never realised until after moving down here Mad

Worse still you were living just down the road from me and could have come over and knapped at my place. 

However every cloud has a silver lining, there's flint here,
