Standedge cutting

Oil landscape by Yorkshire artist Jo Sykes.

“Parking on the A62 Manchester Road we climbed to the top of Pule Hill to explore the quarry, the summit and the view. And what a view! The moors were a range of gorgeous orange and rust of early autumn, and with a wide horizon, the hills showed off a vast range of shape and texture hinting at their history. Even from a distance the cutting itself looks pretty spectacular. It would be a lovely spot to return to do some en plein air painting but this day, although it was sunny and bright, the air was ‘fresh’ – ideal for walking and scrambling but not for standing about too long!”
