Longshaw Estate, Peak District, England - 7th October 2006

By: stargazer

OK, I'm a bit out of breath because I've just got back from a mammoth walk with StarGazer and his canine friend, but here's what I've learnt...

Longshaw Estate is now owned by the National Trust which is a charity organisation which looks after places of interest and outstanding beauty in the UK.

Shaw is an old English word meaning a small wood or forest, and the 'long' bit means that this is a BIG WOOD!  Though it isn't really, it was some very old trees, a lot of boulders and some fantatsic views over miles of countryside.

And, in the Bronze Age (2,300 - 700 BC) people lived out here!  There are hut circles where the people lived up on the moors!

All I can say is, I hope they all had nice furry coats like mine, cos it's chilly out here.
