I found this on Wayback machine but the links don't work
I will try to buy the domain name and see if I can retrieve the links
Such a shame

If you get back to the snapshots calendar and click on the dots you can see a couple of pictures from the web page.
It will all be stored somewhere

I have all the Mountgreen stuff that Wayback machine archived, sadly there are very few images at all.

I was trying to buy the entire Mountgreen site off the owner before he threw his rattle out of the pram. Buying the domain won't get you access to any more files as it has all been deleted.

The deliberate scrapping of the Mountgreen site was one of the most pathetic sulks I have ever seen, the owner spent years accumulating all that fantastic info & just chucked it when he "went off in a huff".

We could get it up and running again to some degree. I have all the photos at least plus a load of new content to use?

I have the majority of the text.

It's a massive job to stitch it all back together again though. May be worth discussing at Blyton.

Ok that's a good plan guys
Well they want £950 for the domain name so that's a no then.
I will try to get what we can together and my website guy will see whats out there.
However he says nothing is ever 'deleted' so if we could find out the website host company he has the technology :lol: :lol:

Update....Found it they are called sitewright based in Whitchurch Shropshire
I will contact them and plead the case as the site was suspended due to failure to pay fees :roll:
Not deleted apparently :?:

There isn't one.

As has been said above. Pete has most of the images & I have most of the text, but without a good few weeks of work it is unlikely that the two will be reunited any time soon.

Here's the start I made months ago.

1971 is now fully restored (more or less) thanks to 3Wheeler.
