Odd rusting yoke!
by Colin Murphy  17 Jan 2022
I can't speak to the hill's qualities as I could barely see my hand before my face in the mist, but one of the striking aspects is the presence of a huge rusting frame of some sort right at the summit. It looks like the skeleton of the roof of a factory building turned on its head, but why it's there and what exactly it is, your guess is as good as mine.
