NY8842 : Fence line above Middlehope Head

taken 5 years ago, 3 km from Allenheads, Northumberland, Great Britain

Fence line above Middlehope Head
Fence line above Middlehope Head
The fence follows the broad, boggy moorland ridge separating the valleys Middle Hope and Rook Hope; Rook Hope is to the right. The fence post at the left edge of the image is the first in the fence line; before that the barrier is a dry stone wall. Why the change from wall to fence? Probably the boggier ground ahead would have been insufficiently firm to carry the weight of a wall.
