Drifting on Billinge Hill

It's amazing what a difference a bit of altitude makes. I climbed the south face of Billinge Hill from Red Bank Road and it was quite tough going, with the snow up to my knees at times, and the approach roads were piled high with snow that had been pushed aside by the snow ploughs (which were still in operation this morning on Crank Hill).

No sign of the mythical Little Owl or Grey Partridge, but there were several Yellowhammers and a Brambling by Red Bank Farm.

  1. Pretty much how it looks at the top of Crank Rd near the Houghwood 'youve arrived' sign. But yesterday theyve piled a lot more snow on either side of the road in that spot and deemed fit to close it.I dont know why they should do this or where theyve taken the extra snow from but it was passable with care the previous day(sunday)
