taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Royton, Oldham, Great Britain

This is 1 of 2 images, with title Thornfields in this square
The complex patterns of contours that dominate the surrounding area almost completely avoid this part of the grid square and on OS maps it looks like it hasn't been drawn properly.
In fact this area (marked on 1:25000 maps as Disused Workings) appears to have been totally flattened for its sand and gravel. Now grassed over with only half a hill left to shelter Thornfields farm it looks very odd!
