From Green Bank to Cranimoor

Descending Carlton Bank, I dismounted the trusty bike to capture this photo of Green Bank, resplendent in the May sunshine and revealing its toponymic origin. Beyond is Cringle End, the steadfast nose of the moor of the same name. The old maps record this as Cringley Moor but an even more archaic name is Cranimoor.

The exposed shale is not a recent landslide. I recall the days of the 2001 foot and mouth epidemic, when we resorted to a training circuit that climbed up Cringle End, descended to the foot of the bank, meandered along the bottom before ascending the gill back to the Lord Stones country park. The only bit of the countryside not closed.
