Only a short update today as I'm a bit tired. . It has been quite wet here today. It was forecast, so no great surprise, and it did stop by about 1pm or so. Dry since, and muggy, there is talk of a thunderstorm overnight. Which would be the best time for it. .
I had a long walk today. First of all down the hill then up the far side of the valley to Stoodley Pike, about 5 miles. Then I followed the Pennine way back down to the main road a mile or so outside HB, and up the far side as far as the Pack Horse Inn above Gorple reservoir, another six miles or so. Then back to HB via Walsham and Hardcastle Crags, the evocatively named National Trust beauty spot. Altogether, 16.6 miles and over 1000m climb so an early night beckons. Tomorrow, the highest spot hereabouts, Lad Law at 507m or 1660ft
