Thank you Bill....
That's Pendle Hill in the background, famous for the Lancashire witches..... Google it if you want to know the story.
I used to live at the other side of the hill. :-)

Thank you Marg.....
It was quite nostalgic for me as it was the last place I took mum before our move to Spain. I could almost see her there as I took the shots, remembering what a great day the two of us had was strangely comforting, and just for a little while it was like having her back again.

This is a photo of England Bill,.....though I guess that from this side of the hill it does look a little like the mountain near us here that you have seen.
We are still in the same house here in Spain that we bought four and a half years ago, we are not moving anywhere...it's far too lovely a place! :-)

Nice view of the Valley here. Is the Memorial WWI. The kit on his back looks to be that vintage. Is that Pendle Hill in on the far side of the Valley. Was there a great deal of shooting here or is it that it took place on the farside of the Channel. Hard for us foreigners to be able to judge this kind of thing. Great picture, we have similar memorials here.

Yes it was erected for the fallen of WW1, though it now is for the fallen of any war of any decade.
Yes that's the famous Pendle Hill, known for the Lancashire witches who lived there and who were put on trial at Lancaster Castle, they were all found guilty and hanged.
Pendle Hill was used as a dumping ground during WW11, even to this day unexploded bombs are found there.
