Airy Holme Lane

Finally it snew overnight. No, that’s not a typo, just the archaic past tense of the word snow. Just as knew and know, and grew and grow. I love to resurrect these lost words. The snow has transformed this photo of Airy Holme Lane, the Public Bridleway that runs between Aireyholme Farm and the col on Roseberry Common, enabling a less photographed view of the back of Roseberry. The ridge behind the walker is the edge of the ironstone strata, extending below Roseberry, the mining of which some have suggested contributed to the 1912 rockfall which gave the summit its distinctive shape. Just beyond the hedge the outline of an Iron Age enclosure is visble by crop marks on aerial photographs.
