Shutlingsloe as seen from near Danebridge, Staffordshire, England

Unless you are travelling along the valley bottom enclosed by trees, you cannot wander along the Dane Valley near Gradbach or Danebridge without a sighting of a hill that I once erroneously considered to be Cheshire's county top, Shutlingsloe. This scene was captured on the approach to Danebridge on a walk from Leek to Macclesfield on the Sunday of a May bank holiday weekend. The walk itself may not have been my first choice for the day but the way that the weather turned out that evening more than made up for that, something that should be plain from the photo that you see here.
