View from Spring Wood

From Whalley Bridge . . .

the weir can only just be seen

An amusing gallery . . .

on Whins Lane above Read

A new gate replaces . . .

the unusual one seen in June

Shady Walks, very pleasant deciduous woodland

Pigmy goats

Written in stone

Quarry beside the disused Wiswell Wireless Station . . .

where a lone tree . . .

hangs onto the rock face
