We used to walk along the underside of the beams to get up to dean wood

Mick, are you telling us that you walked across, just balancing on the web of the beam, with nothing else to hold on to ?. You must be equipped with some large ones.

Ozy we just shuffled our feet side ways and in them days we only had little feet, it got harder when we came to where two beams were bolted together because you had to stand on some of the bolts.
You can still see people names painted under there by lads who have done the same but with a can of paint in there hands
