2010 March.
Tom Cox is improving the bounderies around the field just off Station Road.
Here he is planting a stock proof hedge of Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Field Maple and Roses.
On the other side of the field the dry stone wall is being rebuilt.
All the plants need to be staked and protected from rabbits and stock
Posted by PicasaThe first row is planted and a second row just started,
then a second post and wire fence needs to be erected
to give protection for a year or two from the stock.

The Public Inquiry into the use of this lane by motor vehicles was held in Great Longstone School over 2 days 15th and 16th February 2010. We all await the Inspectors decision it will take some weeks before we know what that is.
26th February 2020 The Inspector has made his decision and confirmed the order to allow this lane to be used by all trafic.His decision might be legally right but there is no common sense in the decision.
This must be the fastest legal decision in history.Read the Link below.

Great Longstone is covered in snow this morning

and the roads are very icy,we've had a very cold start

to the new year.

Church lane is covered with snow on ice and very slippy

I've left the village and roads and set out over the

snow covered fields on my morning walk.

20th January2009 The day was dry and sunny
I set of from home in Great Longstone and walked
through the fields to the top of Longstone moor,
walking westwards towards Wardlow.
I met no one on the moor only these sheep

Near the "Tumulus" above Wardlow I took this
photo eastwards towards Hope Valley and you can
see the chimney in the distance at Hope, about 10 miles

Next I followed the path south eastwards towards
Cherpit Lane and back to Great Longstone
The walk was 4.5 miles and I met no one at all
on the walk.
