The Roaches trig point with fog below
I have not been up here for years but what a day to choose. Fog down below and full sun up above. Couldn't ask for anything better. This is the triangulation pillar (official OS term - we call it a trig point) on Staffordshire's Roaches ridge which has featured on several of my shots recently. It is 505 metres (1656 ft in old money) above sea level. Behind it is the ridge which ends in Hangingstone whilst, protruding above the mist in the left distance is the Post Office Communications Tower on Croker Hill looking for all the world like a surfacing submarine. The foreground is all northern Staffordshire whilst all the distance is eastern Cheshire.

Very grateful to you for bringing alive this lesser known part of the country.

Glad you like it. Lots of valleys round here so the view looks totally different normally.
