Pendle Walk

A New Starting Point

After some very unpleasant weather during the day, the opportunity arose late on for an ascent of Pendle. For reasons that may become clear in the not-too-distant future, I chose to start the walk a little further down the road than the usual point.

Fields of Barley

Barley Fields

From the road, there is a footpath across two fields, leading to the lane which, in turn, leads to the steps ascent of Pendle.

Black Moss

Black Moss Reservoirs

This walk started at 15:03 and this is the half-way point on the steps.

Pendle Sunset

The Stile

It's mighty cool up here, I'll save the word "cold" for next month. Earlier heavy showers have left their mark.

I hogged the summit! Nobody else about for the duration of my visit.

Greetings Count: The gentleman above, who I passed on my way down. Nobody else at all.

Take me back to the start ....
