Today we've been on a local walk into the last bit of wilderness in our area of the Southern Pennines. The area is the big expanse of Boulsworth hill the highest point being Lad Law at 1700 ft. it's the second highest hill in our area. On these moors there is a feeling of wildness and wide open spaces, there is no sound except the roar of the wind and the distant call of the Red Grouse. In summer there's still the solitude but this is broken by the sound of the Curlew, Golden Plover, Dunlin and Twite (the moorland Linnet).
Frequent snow showers on the accent
The view from the summit looking across Pendleside to Pendle hill
The view S.E. to the Dove Stones is much wilder
These are the moors of the Bronte sisters
