Pendel Summit

Pendle Summit

Since the last fully documented ascent of Pendle Hill on 6th April, I've been up there on the 8th, 11th, 14th and 23rd - all a bit much for the website viewer, and indeed the website writer. I'd rather be out in the fresh air than fiddling about with files, folders and pathways to the internet. So here is Pendle ascent No.7 for this month. A fine Sunday morning.

Levels down at Upper Ogden Reservoir. I appreciate the architect's decision to use lighter coloured rocks at the top of the reservoir banks, it makes it looks nice :-)

We walked up Ogden Clough as far as the flagstones and then aimed for the summit.

These migratory birds call in at this time of year on their journey from North Africa to Northern Scotland, or maybe Siberia.
