Cowley Knowl

As I head towards the road I am treated to this view across the valley.

As I left the moor a grouse was guarding the stile.

The campsite's resident peacocks were keeping their eye on the campers.

Cork Stone

Returning to the moor I passed the Cork Stone for a second time.

Stanton Moor

Heading across Stanton Moor.

Reform Tower

The stone circle was rather busy so I headed out to the Reform Tower.

Having given up on the stone circle I took some sunset shots looking across the fields towards Manners Wood.
