Our readers take the walk up to Mow Cop and are rewarded with fantastic views.

Mow Cop Castle isn’t actually a castle, it’s a folly built to resemble a medieval fortress and round tower by the owner of nearby Rode Hall in 1754.

Although the immediate area around Mow Cop is restricted these days, the views across Cheshire and Shropshire are breathtaking, which adds weight to suggestions that the site was previously used as a look out point by the Romans.

Why don’t you upload your images of Mow Cop to the reader photo gallery?
