Some photos of Over Wyre that aren't of historical or archaeological relevance.

Image

North from Rawcliff towards Knott End, over Dry bread Lane, with Knitting Row Lane on the left.

North from Rawcliff towards Pilling, you can make out the windmill. Dockinsall Lane bottom left.

Turkey Street bottom right, Cutts Lane top left.

Image

East of Hambleton, with Cutts Lane, Ghants Lane, Church Lane and Mill Lane.

Turkey Street along the bottom, Knitting row Lane top with Chappel Lane going off right.

Bodkin Lane joining Whin Lane End. Some strange names there!

They are fab photos, certainly a refreshing change to look at lush green fields :)

There's a few intriguing 'earthworks' there as well, Frank...especially in that last one. I'll have to peruse these a bit more carefully after breakfast.

I must say that new recycling plant in Thornton blends in well with the landscape, doesn't it? You'd hardly know it was there...

Some more views over your favourite river. (I say 'your' because mine's the Ribble, but who cares)

Frank,

Fantastic photos as always. I'll be studying these in more detail (especially the ones of Ramper Pot) as soon as I get the chance. Cheers for them.

Brian,
What and where exactly is Ramper Pot, sounds like it should be in the Yorkshire Dales!

Frank,

Ramper Pot is the area/inlet between Stanah and Skippool (marked in the yellow oval on the photograph below):


Image

Nobody seems to known how it came by its name -- possibly it's got something to do with the old earthen sea defences, possibly it's a corruption of Wram (the Wyre dialect word for Worm or Eel) and pul (or the Wyre dialect word for pool or stream). Who knows?

It's an interesting photograph is that one. Note the crop marks in the fields between Old Mains Lane and the now defunct cuttings to Aldwath (Aldwath, of course, meaning Old Ford). I've seen these crop marks on aerial photographs before, although they only show up under certain conditions. My bet is they're the ditches belonging to the old Romano/British road from Aldwath to the prehistoric settlement at the gymkhana field. I wouldn't mind getting a spade and trowel in there to find out...although I suspect the chances of that ever happening are rather slim. Still, you never know...

Hi Brian

Nice to have you back posting. I worked out where I thought the roman road would end up. Basically just extending the curve thats already there and taking account of the higher ground and it ends up near Ramper Pot/Stanah(ish). It also goes past where the Iron Age houses were found in Poulton and takes in the straight section of Skippool Road.

Melanie,

And on the other side of the river it would end up, of course, running alongside Highgate Lane, which is where we dug a chunk of it up last year.

Brian,
I've found some shots of the area from earlier flights which I didn't consider postable due to the reflections from the aircraft window, but they may show more detail.

There's also one of the stream to the north of Stannah, not too clear though.

Image

Also, could you show on a photo the Gymkhana field you mentioned.

Frank,

All the aerial photographs are on my other computer at the moment. I need to port them across, but that'd mean having to unplug the monitor I'm currently using do that I could reconnect it to the other computer, which is far too complicated a task for my half-comatose brain to accomplish before I've finished my first mug of morning coffee, so instead, here's a map (borrowed courtesy of Mario Maps, of course):


Image

The gymkhana field is the one marked with the big red 'X'.

Brian,
Thanks for that info, and appologies for posting two of those shots of Stannah I had previously posted on the Huck de Singleton topic. I must try to keep some sort of records of the photos I've used.
