Silouhette Pendle

Pendle at Dusk

After a week of wind of rain, I took the last opportunity to climb Pendle during the week. It's a quick up and down from the roadside.

Barrowford Reservoir

Barrowford Reservoir

Half-way up and sunlight brightens Colne and the water is Barrowford Reservoir, supply for the Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

Pendle Sunset

Pendle Sunset

Unfortunately, that's as good as it gets this evening. Sunset has been brought forward by virtue of the banks of cloud way out west.

The Summit



Moon over Nelson

The Moon over Nelson

That's at least one ascent per week during each of the last fifteen weeks. It feels to be getting more difficult keeping this up as the night's shorten and the weather misbehaves - there is little point getting up there in cloud, rain or darkness.

Walkers: Just Me

Time taken: 1hrs 1mins over a distance of about 2.5 miles.

Route: Roadside parking, up the steps, along the summit plateau and down the track.

Weather and conditions: Clear, but lacking the last ten minutes of sunshine due to coastal cloud.

Greetings Count: Two coming down as I went up and two others on top.

Take me back to the start ....

Take me home....
