February 2019

Living relatively close to Saddleworth, I thought I would take a drive out to the site at the tail end of the recent snow fall. Parking near Lower Bent farm above the village of Grasscroft it is a bit of a hike up a farm track then two open fields to reach the site.

It was bitingly cold in the wind, but otherwise a beautiful afternoon with great views across Greater Manchester, the Saddleworth Valley, and the Peak District.

Photos are a mix from my DSLR and my Drone - video footage from the visit can be viewed here
