Last week I returned to the Roaches in the Staffordshire moorlands fifteen months after a disastrous photo walk (severely spraining my elbow being chased by a cow!).
It was a very quiet morning, few people rambling, and the atmosphere was fairly hazy. However, after a short hike to the plateau, it was a very pleasant stroll along the ridge. The three photos below give a flavour of the countryside and views.
Stunning rock formations and woodland below give a dramatic feel all the way along the edge.
There was a mysterious yet peaceful feel on the plateau with just birds and mist to keep me company. A long exposure photo blurred the water in the marsh nicely.
The vista across towards Cheshire was beautiful even on a hazy day. Jodrell Bank telescope shone in the sunlight whilst we were clearly amongst low cloud. A great walk, one I must return to for a sunset view someday.
