Another walk over our local Pendle Hill on a lovely springlike day once the clouds started to disperse. This time we approached the top from what I call the back of Pendle ..... the Nick of Pendle. Starting from the Nick you have a height advantage but the distance from the summit is further. We've walked Pendle Hill more times than I care to remember but the periphery walk opens up views that we're less familiar with.
The western side of Ogden Clough with the summit in the distance
Paragliding on the late afternoon thermals
Longridge Fell and Beacon Fell in the distance
The ground has sunk over the years leaving this wall dissecting this pond
The view looking up Ribblesdale with Ingleborough in the distance
The calls of the Curlew and the song flight of the Sky Lark all added to the walk of around 7 miles, a most enjoyable early spring day.
