The village of Heyrod is on the side of the Tame Valley, halfway between Stalybridge and Mossley, just over the hill from Ashton.
The photo shows the houses on John Street, with Wakefield Road just visible running behind them. On the skyline are the hills overlooking Mossley and Greenfield, with Noon Sun Hill in the centre of the photo, the Buckton Castle hilltop to the right and Wharmton to the left.
The hills draw the eye upwards, making the sky a part of the landscape of the valley. Although a fairly sunny day, a dark cloud casts a shadow over Buckton Castle and Carrbrook to the right.

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!
