A rather mellow Moorland……

Stanton Moor, Derbyshire

For many, the word Moor, conjures up a picture of a wild wind blown environment always open to the elements. Stanton Moor is all that.  A plateau above the surrounding countryside, heather and bracken clad.  But it is also a little different from many Moors.  Silver Birch grace areas towards the edges , bare in the winter but rich and green from spring through summer.

Then around the surrounding stone boulder covered slopes, are covered by the wizened shapes of the upland Oak, short in stature and bent to the shape of its surrounds, offering tantalising views over the valley below.

Tranquil in June… but on a winters day it is a very different world.  You could say a Moor for all seasons 🙂

High or Low, wherever you are….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
