taken 2 years ago, near to Hill End, County Durham, Great Britain

Twice-mined spoil above Bollihope Burn
Twice-mined spoil above Bollihope Burn
There's been a great deal of excavation along the slopes above Bollihope Burn - quarrying and mining for lead. The mine spoil in this image is unusual; it came from a small-scale working into shale which surely was not for lead. Twice-mined... the rabbits are at it now!
Bollihope Burn flows below the slope and the village of Frosterley can be seen in the distance; it's in the valley of the River Wear.
