Diggers World is the official home of the archaeologist formerly known as Digger, Mike, Lukie, Port, Rasbutin, River, Popeye, Glenn, five times a night, Dad, Guru, Swimpy, Mum, Marje, Sandy, Durdle etc…
Whats it all about then?
Diggers World is a collection of images of Digger (thats Mike to some of you) and friends as they undertake the tortures of life in the 21st Century.
Note 1: We wish to stress that there is no sponsorship of this page, however, if anybody wants to send Streaky Strips, Twiglets, Wombles (especially the one that is battery powered and nods his head while singing the “Remember You’re A Womble”), or any Glenn Miller merchandise, thats up to them.
Note 2: You will not see any flash graphics, or nudity (thank God), or even too much wit on this web site. If you have come to this site expecting these things PLEASE LEAVE NOW – it’s merely a collection of photos.
The main topics are:
Durdle Door is a sea arch near Lulworth, Dorset. Its one of those iconic landscape features and, even better, you can swim through it. Some people do this once a year. Some people do it more often!!
Want to know more about “Wild Swimming” (that’s rivers AND lakes, not naked swimming)? Now’s your chance with pages dedicated to “The Bare Necessities“, “New Swim Spots” , “Swimming with history” and, of course, the “Ultimate Wild Swimming Gazetteer” (divided into England, Wales, Scotland and the rest of the world).
A misc collection of things that are well, important to me and maybe even some others?
Chile (2015), Argentina (2015), Hadrians Wall (2014), Spain (2013), Scillies and Canaries (2012), Lebanon & Syria (well timed visit in 2009), annual Scottish holidays ( 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 & 2011) and the all important A-Z of countries visited by a coward of air transport
