Copper Mine Lane

Along the Sandstone Trail on Sunday; cold and bright. Starting on Copper Mine Lane, where they did indeed once mine copper, then north towards the Peckforton Hills, and we suddenly seem high above the Cheshire Plain. Cut west from the Trail at the lodge house. Further on views of snow on the mountains of Wales in the far distance and Beeston Castle glimpsed over the next hill. Inspiring horizons and little details: lichen and moss, the sky so blue I took a photograph of it...!
Down this steep lane with remains of old mine rail tracks and then through Bulkeley Hill woods below rocky outcrops we had earlier looked out from.
