Maiden Castle (Bickerton)



The Lancashire and Cheshire Antiquarian Society had an outing here in May 1911. The 'extensive prospect' was 'said to include thirteen counties' (quite a claim). Sadly, 'the summer haze prevented any such view at the time'. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

That's brilliant Rhiannon, thanks very much.
Thirteen counties is pushing it a bit, ten maybe, on a clear day.
I know the pool where they met, the hills are still covered in heather and Bilberry, but how do they get called Maiden castle, I know there's more than two.
And you posted it on my brothers birthday too, very considerate to us Bickertons.
