I thought I ought to go and have a quick look.
As you drive up the road, northwest, from the Pack Horse Inn you are on the route of the Pennine Way. On your left there is this sight…
It doesn’t look very pretty does it? I looked over it for a while and didn’t see any birds. Difficult to believe that this is part of the South Pennine Moors SSSI and South Pennine Moors Special Area of Conservation – but maybe I just caught it on a bad day. Although the sun was shining (though it doesn’t look like it from the photograph).
I drove a bit further up the road and turned the car round. I wonder where this? On the other side of the road I saw this sign.
I have no idea where the ownership boundaries lie in this part of the world. It was interesting to see the very edge of Walshaw Moor for the first, but probably not the last, time.
