One of a very cold Princetown Church in the mist on Monday morning.  And two from today, Great & Middle Staple Tors from Cox Tor and looking towards White & Great Mis Tors from Boulters Tor.  Fresh but brighter.

Princetown church pic is a cracker!
Isn't winter with low light angles and great contrast is fantastic for photos
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park

This photo from my walk on Saturday comes with a bit of a story / speculation for any Lord of the Rings fans out there:



This is Moira furnace, or at least the remains of it in the middle of the mining village of Moira Derbyshire.
While theres no mention of any link with the Mines of Moria from LOTR in the visitors centre at all or anywhere else I can find, it is on the direct route Tolkien would have travelled from his home at Sarehole Mill to Breedon on the Hill (another sort of LOTR name there) while he was researching Beowulf which was written by the local Abbot there.
I dont think it too much of a jump of imagination to say this is more than likely to be part of the inspiration for one of my favorite works of literature.

Looking back towards Tan-y-pistyll from Cadair Berwyn.

Splendid pic Tom. I've just read your excellent TR; The path you couldn't find pretty much follows the snow line on the edge in your picture then descends the broad ridge to the Llyn. It's possible that you couldn't find it cos it was obscured by the snow.


It soon picks up a good farm track (Maybe the one you drove up) but before the road a path crosses a bridge to return to the tea room. There's also another path that descends steeply to the other side of the Llyn, but IIRC it's very wet underfoot on that side..


It's a superb little walk. Try it again on a summer's day and do the loop. It probably won't be any busier either...
