After our visit to Little Moreton Hall (see previous post for picture) we pottered down the road to Mow Cop which is a castle on a hill in Staffordshire. It was built as a summerhouse in 1754 for Randle Wilbraham I of Rode Hall. It's an imposing structure although there's not much left of it!
We had a good scramble around walking off some of the food we'd noshed at Little Moreton, it's not a great walk, only a very short climb up to the top but the views are great.
Here's Laura sitting on a rock to the side of the ruin contemplating the dramatic vista below.
