Walk at Hanging Rock

Hanging Stone, Sraffordshire

It may be nearly November, but the weather is still very mild - even if the sky is permanently light-gray.  Walking is easy in such weather: you just have to be careful not to wear too many layers or you are soon stripping off...

I followed the Roaches walk from the Walking Englishman website to Hanging Stone (in pic) which is an easy landmark to pick out.  From a distance it has an Easter Island effect, but it's basically a gritstone rock outcrop.

  3. Yes, it does have an Easter Island effect. Thank you for choosing the less-obvious landmark. It really is a "land" mark rather than a "people" mark.

  4. The Hanging Stone? I am not familiar with it, but it is a good landmark for this month's theme.
