Oldham Edge

I went up on Oldham Edge yesterday afternoon.  You leave the hospital by its front entrance, cross the road, go through the newish housing estate- and you're there. As soon as I entered the woodland a couple of foxes got up and lolloped off- one in this direction and one in that. 

Parts of Oldham Edge are in what used to be my parish. It's nearly a quarter century since I left- and I'm not in much danger of being recognised- but I can't wander around up there without feeling like a ghost.
