Godley Bridleway


Today's photograph is a contribution to Skywatch Friday.

Horse-riding is a popular pastime in the countryside around Hyde and there are a number of very pleasant bridleways.

This one leads from near the cricket ground at Godley towards Barmhouse Lane. On the left hand side in the valley is the M67 motorway and on the right hand side is the water treatment works and Godley Reservoir.

I'd love to ride a horse on that path - looks completely manageable, like the horse wouldn't have the need to take off and run. Very nicely captured.
