Winter Hill – not Spring yet

The calendar might think it is Spring but the West Pennine Moors know better.

On a clear day the high summits of the Lake District can be seen in the background – today even the nearby radio masts were hidden in the clag.

Much later and Rivington Pike can just about be seen from above the garden behind Pike Cottage.

Since sweeping panoramas weren’t to be photographed today I included the “Trespass Stone” which commemorates a mass trespass in 1896 – much earlier than the better known “Kinder Trespass” of 1932 (http://www.kindertrespass.com/)
