Pulpit

I thought I ought to do some shots of the Howgill Fells from a distance; this is the first one (thanks to David Barrett for the location suggestion). Very near where I was standing to capture this is a plaque commemorating the following, and hence the name of the location.

 

From an article I found on-line:

"Here, in 1652, fresh from his vision on Pendle Hill, George Fox addressed a multitude,and thus began the Quaker movement, 'The Society of Friends'."

 

"A nice shot of the west side of the Howgills, bathed in evening sunshine; golden; pretty", I thought, as I set out from near Ingleborough, where it was vaguely sunny, heading for what is now known as Fox's Pulpit. On arrival, twenty miles away, it wasn't - Yorkshire weather was once again better than Cumbrian weather.... Ah well - I like this too, but the Sun was very much not visible at any point of the two hours I spent there, and this was taken five minutes after actual sunset.

 

Oh! And on the left of this shot are the outskirts of the mighty metropolis of Howgill itself.... another first in this series/project.
