Long Wall Wood Sunset, Winstanley

With the promise of another clear Sunset, I went to the local Wood known as 'Long Wall', part of the Winstanley Estate, and originally completely surrounded by a boundary wall, hence the name!

The Sun was very low but created good shadows at the highest part of the Wood still exposed.

Here are the results!

Fuji X-T1, Fuji 35mm lens.

Sawley Abbey, near Clitheroe

Josie and I went to this English Heritage maintained Abbey to see the ruins.

There just happened to be a wonderful Country Inn called The Spread Eagle 100 yards away too, so an excellent fish and chip lunch ensued after climbing the ruins!!
