Eastergate bridge, also known as Close Gate Bridge, crosses the river Colne near it’s source in the Marsden Moor National Trust Estate. The bridge is on the route of the Huddersfield to Rochdale packhorse trail.
The moorland in the background was the location of a recent fire moor fire. This is a really bad time for fires on the hills since there are ground birds nesting – what makes it worse is that they think the fire was started deliberatly.
Shot on the day of the 2011 Marsden Cuckoo Festival. I took a couple of snaps of that too! I was there on social business but couldn’t resist..
