The Bones of Winter

Such a wonderful phrase for which I can not claim credit nor provide a quotation, it’s just one of those phrases which I’ve read and has stuck in my mind. And it certainly felt as though winter had been defleshed today on Eweing Knoll, Dromonby Bank. I’m on the jet miners track which contours Cringle Moor and the other “bumps” about the level of the old drifts. The path is icy, the wind is bitter. Popular belief is that the path was created by the 19th-century jet miners to access their workings. Somewhere nearby, in 1931, an R.A.F Fairey IIIf which was a biplane, crashed on its way from Leuchars to Northolt. Fortunately, both of the crew survived.
