Fantastic contrast: the green meadow and the completely barren hill.

What is the Pike? Its purpose, I mean.

Thank you! :-) Stoodley Pike is a Monument to Peace - it predates World War One, it for the Crimean War (I think)!

It was difficult to get to - took me ages to find the right path (this wasn't it)! :-)

:-) Thanks! I suspect the 'lump' might be a lamb, there were some in the field - there was also a footpath, somewhere.... it wasn't heading to the Pike though!

I'm sure there'll be something more detailed somewhere, but that's the basic outline of it!

The link was interesting to read. It doesn't look like an easy place to walk up to either. But, I see you made it.

:-) Aye, after going up several wrong footpaths! The actual path goes round the side of the hill and comes up behind it!
