How beautifully GREEN the grass is! ......especially at thistime of the year! It reminds me of how my Canadian-born husband was surprised at how green England is.

Well taken Janice. That will be looking towards Ashhurst Beacon.
What time of day?
Not a golfer or Mick`s bike in sight!! Do you ever walk with the bike up Red Rock, Mick?
Not long to go before the Crazy Golf Course opens!!

Very nice Janice, it's good to see something so refreshingly green again.

Ernest I have managed to peddle up as far as the car park on the side of Red Rock but it nearly killed me.

Mick that would be Harrock Hill. The beacon is way round to the left.

Comment by: Mick on 29th December 2012 at 12:13

Fred, yes the beacon is on the left behind the trees but its still Ashurst Beacon.

Harrock Hill is hidden behind Parbold Hill which is on the right of the photo.

The square block could be Pilkingtons Glass Laboratories at Lathom.
