A walk around Ughill

Do you remember when I went on a guided walk in the Summer?  Here are some more about that morning when we walked from our starting point by 'Edgefield' overlooking Bradfield Dale to Ughill Height where moorland meets farmland.

The hamlet of Ughill is in a sheltered, but isolated spot and was the ancient seat of the Worrall family. This family and its members lived in many of the properties in the area. Most of them are still working farms and it was a privilege to visit them.

                  A double water trough and a watering hole sourced by a natural spring.


The postal service is an important one for this little community.  The post box is set into one of the farmhouse walls at the junction to the hamlet where every property is some distance away from each other.

This is the entrance to one of the properties which we visited. 

This is a corner of the property where we had a warm welcome from the resident cat.

  5. A lovely walk and lovely photos to go with it. Thanks Suzy x

  6. Thank you for taking us with you on this walk. I am constantly amazed at the history found in every part of your beautiful country, but it is nice to see pictures from rural areas that are not too different from what you see over here. We don't have as many stone walls and houses, but they can be found.

    I hope you have a marvelous weekend.

  7. What glorious countryside, Lina, with some interesting local history on top. A great day out.

  8. I always enjoy your walk abouts, especially when joined by a cat. My thoughts went to Beatrix Potter when I saw this country side.
