Sky Watch: Carrbrook

For today's Sky Watch image, we take a short trip to Carrbrook, nestling below the steep Pennine hillside on the border of Stalybridge and Mossley.

The photo is looking up Carr Rise from outside Buckton Vale Institute. On the hilltop to the left can be seen the outline of the earthworks of the 12th-century Buckton Castle. To the right of that is the scar that shows the location of Buckton Quarry.

Autumn has arrived and the trees to the right have started to shed their leaves.

Although the sun is shining, the sky over the hill tells a story as the blue sky starts to be edged out by the looming grey clouds that were to bring rain a little later.

See Birds Eye View of this location.

Sky Watch is the regular Friday feature on this photo blog. It will link 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!


  1. Excellent view... I've never been to the Earth Works.. but read so much about it of late... Carrbrook is a perfect place to Sky Watch from..
    I have a view from a field at the top of Yew Tree Lane... looking over Early Bank Woods.
