White Hill, Saddleworth

Just when we thought the snow was over for winter we get another fall. This time its the Big Freeze.  Walking in deep snow is a new experience for me.  Sinking knee deep on top of White Hill, felt more like an Arctic Expedition.   White Hill is on the borders of Saddleworth and West Yorkshire from Ripponden Road.  It’s going to be a challenge composing music to accompany my video on this one.


A Frosty Walk – Littleborough

We had our first snowy walk just after Boxing Day, but it seems the frosty weather has been lingering  ever since.  With biting cold temperatures as well, it was more a question of not hanging around too long for photos.   My music “Frosty-snow” accompanies my video of the bleak terrains of Blackstone Edge near Littlborough. The sun seting over Littleborough at The White House’ brought a nice end to the day.

Naden Valley Walk

One thing about countryside walking is the sights captured on route.  Our Naden Valley Rochdale walk did just that.  We passed a Ram with an enticing look in its eye, almost as if to say  ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ‘  So here’s looking at you too.

Clitheroe Food Festival

A recent Food Festival at Clitheroe had all the trimmings for eager customers.   Always popular as a local event and growing annually.  The aroma of hot food from hot-dogs to Cakes.  It’s an annual event with music and entertainment, but most of all with atmosphere and enthusiasm.  All captured on my camera and videos.

Frosted by Magic

A local Dance performance to remember.  Amy and her Tangled Dance Company during  her performance at Heaton Hall in “Frosted By Magic”.  We followed a dramatic storyline of dance movements through the rooms of Heaton Hall.  A most enjoyable event with a change of mood in each setting.


After the Festive Season

Its out on the hills to work off the Festive indulgencies.  The New Year of 2018 brought icy snow to challenge a walk on Blackstone Edge near Littleborough in Lancashire.  But plenty of photographic ideas for my next music video to produce.

Christmas Greetings

So it’s the Festive Season again.  An opportunity to wish you all the very best for Christmas and the New Year.

Clitheroe Festival – Grace Davies

Grace Davies sang at one of our annual visits to Clithero Festival.  I remember taking these photos  way back in 2013.  If she is the same Grace as XFactor finalist, what a remarkable coincidence and journey to travel.   Such an achievement, and well deserved talent.

Dunsop Bridge

Who would have thought a trip to the Trough of Bowland Lancashire, would reveal a hidden village. The village of Dunsop was built around this picturesque hump back bridge over the River Dunsop and gateway to the Trough of Bowland.  We didn’t complete the intended 4 mile linear walk through the Bowlands, due to bad weather.

What’s even more dramatic is this quaint area is calculated as being the nearest village to the exact centre of the British Isle.   Its unique telephone box is specifically sited to mark the exact spot.  That’s the beauty of exploring countryside areas, the discovery of something new, even if we don’t walk.


Saddleworth Canal Walk

Just completed another Music Video on Uppermill Saddleworth.  Its part of our territory for frequent Canal Walks.  Also interesting to notice how many Canal and River Enthusiasts there are supporting Canals.  Heres some of the reflective views well known to locals on route.
