1st September 2010

New month, long walks planned for quite a few days in September, so a little training was in order....

Pendle Hill

Busy Pendle

After a very fine day, Pendle Hill was a popular destination for an evening stroll. I set off at 18:50, just a little too early for a sunset, but then I wasn't expecting too much as the sky was quite hazy.

High and wispy stuff over Burnley and Padiham.

Website Developers

The four gents on the summit are from a Nelson firm of website designers and developers. They were taking a few promotional photos and if I can find out exactly who they are, I might pop a link on here for their benefit. Lads, get in touch - see the "About Me" page. I don't host adverts on my site, but if I meet others on fell tops, I'll be happy to tell the world about them.

Pendle Summit

Today, I was supposed to be hosting a few photos from my brother Peter's ascent of the same day. He did a longer walk from Barley to Downham and I was looking forward to offering new views and angles. Sadly, his battery was flat. That's the camera battery, he managed the walk.

Walkers: Just Me

Time taken: 1hr 2mins over a distance of 2.5 miles.

Route: Shortest route from the roadside near Barley, up the steps on the right and down the track on the left.

Weather and conditions: Hazy sunshine.

Greetings Count: Quite a few others about today, including the chaps on top; everyone enjoying themselves.

Richard's Refreshment Review: Not today.
