Beeston

It’s a castle in Cheshire, not far from Tarporley. Set on a rocky crag above the plain, the views are potentially extensive; the ruins perhaps not so impressive, apart from their dramatic situation. This was a good day for a visit – cold and clear air to make the most of the views. The hills of the southern Peak District form the eastern horizon, with Jodrell Bank clearly visible in the plain. The Wrekin, over thirty miles away, is there on the southern horizon. To the west are the Welsh hills, a reminder of why the castle is here, and to the north-west, the chimneys of the Ellesmere Port refineries frame the towers of Liverpool’s cathedrals, across the blue water of the estuary

    What a superb set of pictures – you certainly chose the right day for the views Geoff. The Mersey skyline one is very interesting.
