On the moors

click photo to enlarge
The Forest of Bowland, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a "forest" in the old sense of the word i.e. a "waste" that is good for hunting, but is no good for agriculture. It is mainly moorland with hill farms in the valleys and on the lower slopes. However, there are a few trees!

"I never saw a moor,
I never saw the sea,
Yet know I how the heath looks,
And what a wave must be."
Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), US poet
