County walk: Minninglow
Cross a theatrical landscape etched by ancient trackways overlooked by a halo of windswept trees on this lovely winter walk
hilltop summit of Minninglow with its iconic cluster of mature beech trees surrounded by an arboreal halo. See also the extensive dark grey wall stretched out beneath it. This is an impressive embankment structure created in 1831 to support one of the first railway lines in the world. Peeping over the side of the hill are the outstretched fingers of a wind turbine on Carsington Pastures.
