SE0013 : March Hill, Marsden

taken 8 years ago, 4 km from Bleak Hey Nook, Oldham, Great Britain

March Hill, Marsden
March Hill, Marsden
Previously I thought that the shape of the hillside was caused by quarrying, but it might be due to landslips. The hillside round to the left is called March Hill Holes, and I am coming to the conclusion that the term 'Holes' indicates old landslip areas.

I have now found confirmation of this: "On steep slopes such as March Hill, north west of March Haigh Reservoir near Marsden, and West Nab near Meltham, down-slope movements have resulted in landslips." from LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
