||Very hot and sunny, around
25 degrees centigrade
||A re-visit to this area and 'The Rock'.
On this very warm and sunny day twenty five people roamed the public
footpaths in the Livesey area. It was roughly circular in plan and
with the M 65 passing through its centre. The area having some
gentle inclines offered views of Darwen Tower and local landscapes.
The tower was completed in 1898 to commemorate Queen Victoria's
Diamond Jubilee and also to celebrate the victory of local people
for the right to access the moor. A nice walk with refreshments of a
liquid and solid kind at The Rock.

A distant Darwen Tower
An unusual name for a farm - or is it
One of many birds . . .

A respite from the heat
Brian and his merry men - and women
Well it is the cricket season
On the straight and narrow - alongside the M65
The distant mound was recently a working refuse tip
Why are we waiting?
