Expedition[edit]

I had been patiently waiting for some low-hanging fruit while I was in my home graticule, (53,-1) for Christmas break before returning to university in Birmingham (52,-1) and finally caught this one on the way to a New Years Celebration party with friends in central Sheffield. A slight detour of ~0.7 miles (and a few more pounds on my train ticket) got me there through the dark and the rain to get some pretty dreadful pictures (apologies). Certainly worth a visit!

Also, on a things I learned note, Wincobank is home to an Iron-Age hill fort that is believed to be pre-Roman, and had I not been up to the hash and had to figure out the name of the place for this post, I wouldn't have known of it; interesting stuff!
