Rambling around the West Pennine Moors #2

Today, you see the photos of the final part of the walk – from Winter Hill back to Rivington Hall Barn.

The group at the stile on Rivington Road, pausing for breath before the haul up to the summit.

The view from the top of the ascent path.

After that climb we had a break for a couple of minutes to recover.

The path to the transmitter – and from there it was nearly all downhill.

The view from the other side of the transmitter as we left. There was still a way to go but I didn’t bother with many other photos. We followed the footpath along Rotary Way, around the foot of Crooked Edge Hill to Pike’s Cottage and Ormston’s Farm and finally past Rivington Lodge and a walk around Liverpool Castle then to Rivington Hall Barn and a cup of tea.

Today’s featured photo looks from our footpath, towards Rivington Tower – the site of a hilltop beacon – beyond Brown Hill at 362 metres.

EXIF data were 1/1250 secs @ f/16 and 55 mm. The ISO was 1600.
