A Walk in September Sunshine
A Walk in September Sunshine
Type: Countryside
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Greenberfield, Barnoldswick BB18 5SU

Description:

Greenberfield Locks are nice and handy to go for a short walk.

The Lock Stop cabin is a good spot for refreshments at the beginning and end of a walk.

Beyond the locks, quiet countryside takes control of the towpath.

Dairy cows, sheep and horses graze and birds skim the water taking their fill of insects.

A good circuit takes you northwards along the towpath. Past bridge 158 and round the bend, a style on your right skirts you around the Rolls-Royce Ghyll Brow plant over the fields. (This can be a muddy trod especially at the gate holes.more

Drumlins
Drumlins
Type: Countryside
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: North of Barnoldswick BB18 5SU

Description:

The north of Barnoldswick is dominated by an extensive drumlin field which extends to Gargrave.

Drumlins are small hills which formed beneath the ice sheet which covered the area during the last ice age.

These hills are made from boulder clay dumped by the ice sheet as it moved over the land. The movement of the ice shaped the mounds into gently rounded, slightly egg shaped hills. The tapering of the drumlins indicates the direction the ice sheet was following.

Barnoldswick's drumlin field is a text book example of the phenomena and is visited by students of geology during field trips.more

Letcliffe Park Logs
Letcliffe Park Logs
Type: Countryside
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Letcliffe Park, Manchester Road, Barnoldswick BB18 5HE

Description:

Rows of logs were placed by the tracks to the parking areas at Letcliffe Park to help prevent people taking cars onto the grass several years ago.

Pendle Council's Parks department brought the logs from Marsden Park at Nelson, where woodland had been thinned out as part of improvement works.

The decaying logs are home to lots of tiny creatures and fungi are doing their bit as well to consume the wood.

Letcliffe's logs provide a fascinating range of textures.

Letcliffe Park Logs Again!
Letcliffe Park Logs Again!
Type: Countryside
Submitted by:David Whipp
Item Location: Letcliffe Park, Manchester Road, Barnoldswick BB18 5HE

Description:

The visual variety of the logs at Letcliffe Park is too great to be confined to a set of seven images; here are some more.

Originally, Letcliffe Park was a formal, Victorian stile, park. In the 1980s Letcliffe was made into a country park.

The logs in the top area of the park fit well with the country park status.

Lots of wildlife appreciate the logs; including the two crows in the main picture.

There are plenty of thriving trees in Letcliffe Park; these are the subject of several more Explore items on Visit Barnoldswick!
