I've nailed it this time. Everyone who uses this site can be referred to as a 'Landista'.

Winner!

(Oh, and speaking as someone who used to work in town planning, the term 'manhole cover' is generally accepted as being gender neutral as the description dates from the 1890s and was coined to describe a particular size of maintenance/inspection access hole cover. Although, I do quite like the alternative term which is gaining support over in the States - 'utility hole' - now that conjures up all sorts of possibilities in my mind.)

.....so the lid would be called "A utility hole cover!!!!"
However did this thread wander so far from the original topic. Whatever must Hannibal think?

Hi Hannibal,

Welcome to the (gender neutral) forum, Lots of great help and advice on here. Very Happy

Reminds me of a recent discussion around the gender of Land Rovers... Smile
