A walk in our South Pennines

Sunday 3rd Jan 2010.
                                 Today I've been a walk into Thursden Valley about 3 miles from where I live, it's an unremarkable ordinary Pennine valley but it's special to me because I spent most of my childhood  playing there.
   Today under winter skys its hard to imagine that this valley will come back to life in a few months time with Bluebells,Orchids and wild Brown Trout darting about in the clear moorland stream,( all the wonders of nature that I enjoy).
                          What also struck me on the walk was how Pendle Hill tends to stand out under it's mantle of snow.
