What to do with this?

I’m trying to figure out what to do with this site. It appears to have been a dud idea as no one ended up using it unfortunately.

Any ideas? The best I can come up with is to move it all to a sub-domain of as a historical archive.

Coalpit and Lower Manorburn

Saturday afternoon
Lower Manorburn – main basin – snow ice on top of old ice in Rush Cutters and shady parts. (ice over most of the basin) Soft surface in the sun but hard and bumpy in the shade. Some other skate-able spots in the shady areas
Some new back ice in parts but too thin to skate.

Coalpit – Snow ice over most of the pond. (over some older ice on shady side) Skate-able but soft surface in the sun. Track in has a lot of snow.

(lots of snow in the range around Poolburn)
