Belmont Moor, Lancashire


Belmont Moor, Lancashire

Looking across the moors to the slight rise of Horden Pasture to 'Spitlers Edge' on the skyline.

A variation on the name Belmont appeared as Belmunt in the 12th century so it is a name with a long pedigree although the area was also known as Horden in the 18th century, a name that is said to mean dirty or muddy valley in Old English.
