Sky Watch: Millstone Monument


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

Today's Sky Watch photo shows the small structure made from old mill stones on the summit of Hartshead Pike.

This marks the site of the original tower that stood on the hill top before the present tower was built on a more prominent spot a few yards to the south.

See Bird's Eye View of this location.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!
