Impenetrable Impasse


This thick wood, a western enclave of the of the once extensive Gower Hey Wood, lies south of Wood End Farm overlooking (if you could see through it) the river Tame as it flows through Haughton Dale.

For more I posts visit ABC Wednesday.

Looks all gnarly & menacing!

It'll soon be as green as it is on Google Earth :>D

These a small stream in the bottom that lets it waters into the tame... toward the bottom edge of the woods is a patch of think orange mud. something to do with iron in the ground I think.... As children we though this mud was like quicksand and would suck you down..

The "wood exclave" must fight hard for its being, I guess...
God bless you!

There are places that look as isolated as this within a few hundred yards of Manchester city centre.

What a challenge this provides, nearly too alluring not to step inside, inside life.
A wonderful Wednesday for you.

It is somewhere that I do not want to be trapped in.

I can just imagine what this looks like in the summertime...reminds me a bit of some of our Florida swamps...

I would definitely prefer not to get tangled up in that, but it does make a great shot for the day! Have a great day!

It looks thorny and not a place to be entered lightly! Enjoyed your post!

Gives me that old claustrophobic feeling; I've been caught in such things. (Shudder.)

What an interesting title. It is a beautiful sight though, a little scary, if you think about its unending breadth..but I like it.
