Followers will know of my love of Silver Birch. This stand of Birch on the heights and open windswept expanse of Stanton Moor were most definitely one of my favourites. Sadly when we visited a week ago, the Birch were gone. In the early spring, it lost one of its multi trunks in those storms that past swiftly across the moor. The remaining trunks failed to stand the pressures of the September gales.
No longer will this iconic landmark grace the horizon of the Moor.
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
