I have been looking closer... but where is Isabella???
She saw me take my camera out and hid behind the tree!!!! ;)
There used to be a coalmine here called the "Isabella Pit". This is the reclaimed land where the pit heap used to be and the area is now called "Isabella" (locally "the 'bella").
It used to be quite common for mine-owners to name the mines after their wives or daughters.
ahaaaaaaaa, I had the intuition that there was an interesting story behind this... ;) thanks for telling!!
