NT5453 : Moorland in retreat

Moorland in retreat
Moorland in retreat
The 1:25000 map, somewhat out of date in these parts despite the dates placed by the OS on the cover, shows the gate to be the edge of the moorland. Sometime since then another field has been ploughed. The fencing of the new field is rusty, so it has been there some time. It provides summer grazing for cattle.
The map is badly wrong in this area.
