taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Haughton Moss, Cheshire, Great Britain

Trig. point at Ridley
Trig. point at Ridley
The view is to the NW. The trig. point (alt. 125m) lies just E of the A49 and just N of the A534 in the parish of Ridley. A telephone mast and covered reservoir lie just behind the photographer. This is the high point of the undulating land east of the Peckforton Hills and south of the Beeston Gap. The Peckforton Hills are seen in the distance, with Peckforton Castle on the central skyline 5 km away and Beeston Castle just visible on the skyline a little further to the right on its isolated hill nearly 6 km away. This part of Cheshire seems not to know whether it is supposed to be the Cheshire Plain or the sandstone hills and has a character of its own.
