Woods, Moors and Plebs

We have stayed at Higher Poynton for another night which has given me the opportunity to head for Lyme Park again and explore other areas.  I headed for a summit that was cloaked in a magnificent stand of beech trees; it was just so nice to be in a wood.  The wood was walled to keep out the deer so you accessed through bolted tall gates or you climbed over the walls using these oak ladders.  As I approached the first ladder I was a bit concerned that I was going to be providing a fireman's lift for a certain dog...fortunately the wall builder had taken pity on me and other dog walkers and provided a dog friendly access alongside the ladder.

Perfect for Floyd
Woodland path
Moorland path
Either, a Wood Lark or a Sky Lark, I am not sure but I was still pleased to see and photograph the wee beastie
Arriving back a Yarwood after a two hour tramp we decided to head for the Boars Head and a pint.
Boars Head Higher Poynton, real ale and dog friendly..
and while we were here I though a lunch might just hit the spot so..

thanks to Sue of Nb Festina Lente for her inspiration,  she told me she had enjoyed this yesterday, a Pleb (sorry Police Fed) lunch of Ham Egg and Chips!!!  The dogs enjoyed the ham but the egg and chips were lovely!
