Category Archives: Moorland Views

Living in Lancashire we are surrounded by beautiful Open Heather Moorlands of the Pennines, Oswaldtwistle Moors, Haslingden Moors, Saddleworth Moor and the Rossendale Valleys.

The open moors are a colour pallet that changes with the seasons with big sky’s as far as the eye can see.

Silence

The Grain Road is an amazing scenic road that connects Haslingden to Blackburn in Lancashire. In summer months you feel you are on top of the world passing high over the moorland but in winter there is often low cloud. This picture was taken in low cloud conditions it had the benefit of filtering out the harsh sun to create a warm golden light.

The Old Barn at Birtle

Birtle-barn-062

Some have described this Birtle barn (also can appear as Bircle on old maps)  as was the “Old Hanging Barn” the place where local criminals were hung on a Silver birch. I do not know how true this was  but all is quiet now. This barn is one of many nice old cottages in the village of Birtle which nestles between Bury and Heywood in Lancashire and is one of my favourite places to photograph.
