~Pendle Hill~

17th August 2010

A dull and damp day slowly improved and just after 19:00hrs, I decided that conditions were right for a special trip up my local fell....


19 x Pendle Hill

71 "Wainwright" Lakeland Fells, two "Outlying Fells", Pen-Y-Ghent, Ingleborough, Buckden Pike, Thieveley Pike,

Moel Siabod and second visits to these three Lakeland Fells: High Spy, Eel Crag and Sail.

Pendle Shadow

After a recount on Sunday, I found myself one short of a century of summits for 2010. Pendle Hill to the rescue.

Pendle Hill

The Stile

Very fortunate the way the sky cleared at just the right time. At 5pm, I had no thoughts of this walk.
