"As we came past the junction a stationary vehicle to the left of us made the decision to pull into our path. "I don't remember it being sunny that day - I'd never want to put myself in the position where I'd say that the Duke wasn't being honest but I don't recall that day being sunny.

We'd been complaining that it was miserable and overcast."'DIFFERENT WALKS OF LIFE' She continued: "I … [Read more...] about Prince Philip crash victim claims it was OVERCAST when he was ‘dazzled by sun’ in nasty smash – and reveals cops still haven’t interviewed her

They are a legacy of the region’s prospecting past, when almost anyone could dig a mine and then walk away, with little cleanup required, when it stopped producing.
