Cobbled Path to Osborne Road


The cobbled path leading out of Gower Hey Woods towards Osborne Road. In the mid-19th century this was a busy road sett leading to an industrial complex in the valley but none of that now remains.

The coloured version of this photograph can be seen on Geograph.

A contribution to Cobblestones, the CDPB theme for April 2012,
The Weekend in Black and White and
Shadow Shot Sunday.

  3. What a romantic spot to go for a walk with your someone special. It is beautiful. It must be a glorious spot when all the vines and trees are green. This is a stunning picture. genie

  4. The black-and-white view is haunting, a path leading into or out of the dark woods or into daylight. The monochrome has such an evocative feeling, and many eras have passed by and it looks cool...

  5. Not only is it cobbled, but it is also shadowed! So inviting!

  9. Fabulous shot Gerald, not only the cobblestones, but the lovely low brick walls. I like your perspective, leading to what might be around that bend in the road.
