Hartshead Pike

This week's Sky Watch is a return visit to Hartshead Pike. This pointed tower is situated on the prominent hill called Hartshead Pike about 3 miles north-east of the centre of Ashton and is one of my favourite places to photograph. As we saw a couple of weeks ago, it is not the highest hill in the area but its prominent position means it can be seen from many places. In turn this means that the Pike is a splendid viewpoint. It is also a fabulous place to come and watch the sun setting.

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!

Albion Church

This week's view of My World shows Albion Church seen from the tower of Ashton Parish Church. Albion Church was the largest Congregationalist church in the north of England.

In the foreground is Ashton's telephone exchange and behind the church is Tameside College. Behind that is Ridge Hill, covered with houses and dwarfed by the bulk of the Pennine hills in the background.

"Albion Church" is my contribution to this week's "My World" feature. Please check out the other blogs participating in this week's My World.
