Hi Ted, I looked all through the website in question and could find no trace of the date it had used. We did have an automatic date on there that was generated from a script but I am not sure that this was the problem. I have removed this now anyway.
It has used the same date on all the pages other than those that actually have a date mentioned in the content. These pages are indexed by the bot on different days so if it had been using the script date it would surely have changed it to that which it found when visiting?
Google seems to have arbitrarily decided to apply this random date to all these pages and I don't know where it got it. For the moment I have added a (current) hard date to the home page content to see if it will at least force it to change it to something more current.

Out of interest what date has it come up with? I had this & found others had the same date. I removed a sript that displayed the date & time on each page and the problem seems much reduced. Maybe coincidence mind!
