I had the same problem with my first post a few days ago. I've been
thinking about moving the list away from Yahoo! Groups, but I doubt
that it'd be worth the change of mailing list address.

Excellent news! I'm really glad to see that you're still around and
publishing, especially since Devereux seems to be more interested in
other areas lately--his work with Brookesmith (1997) being the most
recent that I know about.

I notice that that book cites your work with Granville Oldroyd,
"Spooklights - A British Survey" (1985), which seems to have been
published privately. Are copies of that work still available, either
from you or any other source?

That's wonderful, thanks ever so much.

One question that I've been meaning to ask you for years and years
now, ever since I first read your "Peakland Spooklights" article [1],
is: where is Meg o'th' Lantern Lane located in modern terms? Does the
road even still exist anymore? I don't have access to the copy of the
Derbyshire Advertiser & Mercury that you reference, nor have I ever
come across any other reference to the lane. But it's a wonderful
information point, and I'd love to know more if you have the details
easily to hand.
