Old Railway Cutting Wall

Here we are back on the Trans Pennine Trail.

This overgrown wall is near the bridge under Stockport Road.

Personally I think there's always something beautiful about an old stone wall.

What are mushy peas?

Gerald (SK14) said...

Mushy peas are dried marrowfat peas which are first soaked overnight and then simmered until they form a green lumpy paste.

Put "mushy peas" into Google and you'll get far more information than you thought possible.

Not quite the same thing but I also came across this lovely shed load story.

I really like this shot! Do you know what the pink flowers are?

Gerald (SK14) said...

I wish I did know what they are, but my botanical knowledge is poor.

Somewhere nearby on the same I took this photo

The underggrowth / overgrowth has given that wall some great character.

Love your description of mushy peas, "green lumpy paste". You'll never believe this, but I saw a tin in the supermarket in Buenavista last week. :)

The pink flowers are Epilopbium angustifolium, or willow herb.


The blue flower is Chicory, Cichorum intybus, which has escaped from a Garden. You will be familiar with the forced leaves as a salad vegetable.
