Taken with my new Canon 50D, Sigma 10-20 lens at 10mm, F11, shutter speed 0.25 seconds, ISO100, edited in Photoshop

First shot using my new Canon 50D, not as sharp as I would like because I had to hand hold.

Nestling under the bulk of Pendle Hill this is one of the loveliest villages in Lancashire, quiet and unspoiled with a gurgling brook running past the village green and stone-built cottages.

The church tower is a splendid example of 15th century architecture. Successive generations of the Assheton family have lived at Downham Hall since 1558; the present squire is Lord Clitheroe of Downham.

A large stone by the entrance to Downham Hall is said to mark the final resting place of two legionnaires who died on the Roman road during trouble with the Brigantes.

The village was used as a location for the famous film Whistle Down the Wind and more recently the popular BBC drama Born and Bred was filmed here. It also has associations with Old Mother Demdike and other infamous Lancashire witches.
