They Shall Not Pass!

By woolybill1
Steps with wooden risers lead down to a wooden bridge over the dry stream separating two fields above the Hope Valley in the Derbyshire Peaks. The gate at the nearer end almost conceals an old-fashioned vertical stone stile, the ensemble forming the stock-control equivalent of belt and braces.

Thanks for your votes, comments and awards yesterday; all are much appreciated.
Thanks for looking.

It seems to me that if a determined cow can jump over the moon then a piddly little gate shouldn't really present a challenge.

Excellent mobile capture Bill. They should close the gate behind them if they do pass, only right and proper Smile

I like the lighting, how it catches the gate and the edge of the steps. Formidable barrier against entry! Great mono tones and composition, Bill

Lovely B/W and they obviously aren't too keen on strangers in those Derbyshire hills!
