Chasewater return

Just a few things I saw on the way to Chasewater and back this morning.

birds foot trefoil 170612 w (360x177)
Bird’s Foot Trefoil where Cannock Chase Colliery No 1, “The Marquis” was. This is where some spoil from the M6-Toll was tipped. A post-industrial landscape you can enjoy.

Eagle-eyed locals may just pick out the top of the old valve gear building on Chasewater dam.

In among the trefoil and rabit-graze grasses were several bee orchids.
