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!!

Kings Moss Harvest

I went across to my favourite area as I knew the fields of Wheat were looking golden and ripe, and was just in time to see the harvest begin!

Haigh Hall Plantations

I visited this area of the Plantations in May, so returned to see what had changed in two months.

The foliage is giving greater cover, and the Bluebells have obviously disappeared, but due to the amount of rain, the whole area is very much more boggy!

Fir Tree Farm Wildflower Meadow

Off I went to see this year's colours in the wildflower meadow at the farm down in Kings Moss, Billinge.
This year the Corncockle is the main flower, with a scattering of Daisies, Poppies and Corn Marigolds.
