Starting Point Twist Moor Lane, Withnell (SD636 218)    
Distance 2.5 miles    


A short walk up to the remote ruins of Botany Bay Farm then across the oor to New Temple and Solomon'Temple,


As you walk up from Twist Moor Lane, After assing the white house to the right this little stream flows. It's not often it flows as full as this. It just caught my eye today

Young white bulls met us today


.. but they weren't at all interested in us!


Looking back down the path. Withnell is in the distance


The old track up to the farm


The lonely tree marks the location of the farm


The tree and Botany Bay Farm's gateposts


The sad remains of the farm

A single gatepost stands in the farmyard


Looking back along the moorland path - the solitary tree is visible in the distance


Solomon's Temple
