Up on the moors

IMG_2616

Last Saturday, after a tough few days at work, I decided I needed to get out for a walk. It was a warm day and we probably haven’t got many of those left this year!

I wasn’t able to get out to the Lakes or Dales so decided on a walk closer to home. So it was off to White Coppice to set off up Great Hill and Anglezarke.  It’s a walk I’ve blogged about before but here’s a few pictures from a pleasant day up on the moors.

Starting and finishing at White Coppice near one of the lodges that used to supply water to the mill that used to be there many years ago.

    • Certainly is. Not massive climbs but considering how close the moors are to several former cotton towns they seem remarkably isolated. A landscape formed by sheep but also industrial activity – lead mining and quarrying in particular. Used to spend a good part of my free time up here when I was a teenager as I was up on the moors in 20 minutes after walking out the front door. Live a drive away though these days
