Baysdale

A precarious cairn overlooking the isolated Baysdale. I’m told by a resident of the dale that the cairn was built by Roland Close, estate worker and archaeologist, who also lived in the dale. Roland Close has been mentioned before in these posts. Firstly as the builder of this bridge over Great Hograh Beck and secondly as the archaeologist of the iron age village on Percy Rigg.

Baysdale has also been featured before. In fact the location where I took that photo can be seen in this one: look right from the top of the cairn and I was standing just below the forestry on the spur.
