Fishink Walks Dunsop Bridge

September 8, 2012

This week we took in a walk around the area called Dunsop Bridge.  It was a cool but sunny day, with some dramatic light throughout the 10 mile route. How’s this for a view with lunchtime sandwiches ?

It was a mixed day of sun and cloud, but there wasn’t a drop of rain so you won’t hear me complaining lol. A good day for spotting wildlife too.

A day for noticing detail, small shapes and then also large, travelling, landscape lines too.

Someone was making hay whilst the sun shone, but it wasn’t me. I did notice a whole field of cows with white midriffs which was a little odd.

Apart from getting caught in the peakbogs on the moor tops, the rest of the footpath was relatively dry, and there were some wonderful moments of dramatic light and colour.

Much debate surrounds the exact position of the centre of Great Britain. Dunsop Bridge was officially recognised by the Ordnance Survey in 1992 as the neareset village to the centre of the British Isles and BT marked this by placing its 100,000th telephone box on the village green. The lovely stone cafe below was sadly closed by the time we had finished our walk, and the ducks were all asleep on the riverbank opposite. We stopped off for a drink in Waddington on the way back instead, another beautiful village.

A great afternoon out.
