Diggers World is the official home of the archaeologist formerly known as Digger, Lukie, Port, Rasbutin, River, Popeye, Glenn, five times a night, Dad, Guru, Swimpy, Mum, Marje, Sandy, Durdle and sometimes even Mike……
It features a collection of photos of Digger and his friends as they undertake the “tortures” of life in the 21st century……
The main topics are:
Want to know more about “Wild Swimming” (that’s rivers AND lakes, not naked swimming)?
Now’s your chance with individual areas/pages for:
- “New Swim Spots” as it says, new swim spots ie ones I’ve not been to before this (or possibly last year)
- “The Bare Necessities” not as it sounds, the basics of “wild” swimming
- “Swimming with history” as it says, but surprisingly few opportunities
- and, of course……….
- The “Ultimate Wild Swimming Gazetteer” (divided into England, Wales, Scotland and the rest of the world).
Durdle Door is a sea arch near Lulworth, Dorset. Its one of those iconic landscape features and, even better, you can swim through it. The latter is known as Swim the Door (or its well known acronym STD). Some people do this once a year at a gathering in June. Some people do it more than once a year! Find out about some of these people via the following pages: Veterans, Artwork
Auto-timer top tips, Auto-timer awards (year by year) and, of course, self-photography (apparently known as selfies to some)
A misc collection of things that are, well, important to me and maybe even some others?
Dance “tips”, Glenn Miller, Festivals, Mark “the priest”, Wombles etc

DiggersWorld.net had now been updated and upgraded. It now has drop down menus! Many thanks to Graham for all his work on the upgrade.
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.
