New Monument ???

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

Have we got one or are my eyes deceiving me ?

Ok. (Excuse my appalling local geographical knowledge ) I will try my hardest to give location : From Cribden Hill looking across valley in Rochdale direction. Above old railway lines on (?) Cowpe Lowe , above farmhouse where several caravans sited, to left of solitary domestic wind turbine which is on highest top there, next highest top and there it is .(Did say my geographical knowledge was appalling !!)
I have looked with my 'binoculars' - which are really no more than a childs toy. Looks like a mini Darwen Tower.. Also looks like it may be made with stack of tractor tyres (but may be entirely wrong there - no pun intended)

Anyone know what it is ??

(kind of dreading response to this one - last time I made comment on strange sighting over there was a horse I spotted that was always in the same place, to be informed by my daughter it was a tree !! - But she can see my monument/tower and also thinks it resembles a stack of tyres)

Re: New Monument ???

I think I know what you are trying to describe.

Last Sunday afternoon I walked from Sandybank to Edenfield, going up Higher Lench and across Hurdles Quarry then on to the old stone cutting mill above Cloughfold. On the edge of the waste heap someone as built a tower about 10/12 feet high from the discarded stone off cuts.
