Here's a few images of the past 3 day's....
|The remains of 5 Beehive Coke Ovens, these are towards the South of Holme village and on the opposite side of the canal to the towpath...which has probably helped them survive in their current condition. More information can be found here .|
|Further on the towpath past Holme Mills, you leave the village behind. Looking back Farleton Knott fills the background.|
|Leaving the canal behind I dropped down onto the mosses and along Hilderstone Lane.|
The bridleway in the photo is usually extremely wet...often underwater! Today merely damp.
|Thursday saw me walking generally West, back down Old Lane. The naughty cows above have only just been let out after a Winter inside...they were very inquisitive and no doubt plotting against humans!|
|The un-walked footpath today, it's not very long and follows field perimeters (in the main) from Hang Bridge to Pye's Bridge.|
|A new view for me along the River Bela towards Hang Bridge. This footpath seems to see very few walkers....|
|....Little wonder if this was the only way forward. There is in fact a gate just out of shot. |
It's quite likely that the 2 large pieces of limestone forming the stile were "robbed from Farleton Fell or Knott.
|Today I again walked down Old Lane stopping to photograph the same Horse Chestnut bud as several days ago...Spring is really moving on.|
|Although just before I crossed the M6 (actually under, by means of an underpass) there was this view of Heversham Head. Sadly beyond my range of walking within the advisory time limit at the moment.|
