Contemplating the View.

Mow Cop, originally uploaded by Eyeshoot Photography.

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.
