A slice of Lyme 6 - On the moors

The climb up from Lyme Hall to the Bowstones is breathtaking in more ways than one. From here, on a clear day, you can see the whole of Manchester spread out below, and right over the Cheshire Plain as far as the mountains of North Wales.

This marker helps to identify some of the landmarks which can be spotted, including the Lovell radio telescope at Jodrell Bank and the Goyt Reservoirs in Derbyshire.

There's something very spiritual about being in such an exposed location...

...until it chucks it down with rain!


  1. I enjoyed all your views of Lyme, H. The scavenger crow in view one made me smile! The views in this post made me feel awe. Imagine all who gazed upon the same view over the millennium?

  2. Wonderful, wonderful photo !
    Love the last part ...until it chucks it down with rain!

    cheers, parsnip

  3. That second view just goes on into infinity.

  4. That first photograph captures a sense of pervading bleakness...I love it!
