Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Chipping car park
Bracket fungi deserve . . .
a closer look from above . . .
and higher up . . .
a spider's web . . .
adds to the picture
A stand off - note the dog on the right
From the first summit on Long Knots . . .
and looking back from the second summit
A cattle grid in action
Approaching New Laund Farm . . .
the cheese press makes an interesting feature
The Hodder Gorge from New Laund Hill
The old barn at Fair Oak Farm (1724)
The ford over Greystoneley Brook . . .
but a nearby footbridge makes crossing it easier . . .
and provides a vantage point for another photo
Lime kiln at Knot Hill . . .
where the ovens can still be seen . . .
and there is a view from above
Some noisy geese attract my attention . . .
as they preen themselves . . .
and flap their wings
Taking a closer look . . .
patience is rewarded . . .
as they peck and scratch
The goose on the left prepares . . .
for another flapping session . . .
followed by the one on the right
But when I get a little closer they soon tell me to move away!
Can we come too?
In the grounds of Leagram Hall Farm . . .
a couple of trees attract my attention
