Autumn Colour On The Hillside

Autumn colour on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. The hill is the southern end of a sandstone ridge sticking out of the Cheshire plain.

On a clear day you can see central Liverpool. The group of Silver Birch trees on top of the hill are on the site of an Iron Age hill fort known as Maiden Castle.

A photo from my archives, originally it was going to be a Throwback Thursday post. Instead it is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Hillside.

Some may say a blot on the landscape but they are so worthy of a photograph when rising up on the horizon. Wind farms fascinate me too, they appear so futuristic even though they’re not.

The name Fiddler’s Ferry comes to mind for the power station. Thinking about it now, that’s an unusual name. I wonder where they got the name from?

Well now you’ve got me thinking back to the sixties.
There was a band in the nineties called the Ferrymen from Doncaster. Had to look it up.

I was thinking of two word band names with obscure meanings, Steelers Wheel, Episode Six, Procul Harum (sp?) and probably hundreds more that I can’t think of at the moment.

There wasn’t much to see in the 1980s and 1990s. Some of the earth ramparts were still visible in places although it was mostly overgrown with Silver Birch trees. A sandstone cliff formed part of the defenses.
