Seasonal greetings from Pendle Hill

Sunday 28th Dec 2014
                 Our local Pendle Hill standing at 1831 ft proved to be extremely popular today for walking off the overeating and indulgences of Christmas Day & Boxing Day.
            This is just another of the countless walks to the summit, but today with the weather being so perfect we've never seen so many people on the summit during Christmas week.
             The walk from the village of Barley is a round trip of between 5-6 miles with an altitude gain of about 1100 ft. The low angle winter sunshine just enhanced the wintry scene and made for an uplifting satisfactory winter's walk.

                     Today's approach up the ridge from Ogden Clough

                                       The source of Pendle Water

                                   Long shadows difficult to avoid

                                    Looking towards the Bowland Fells

                                          Fading Light by 2:30 pm

                   Back down via Ogden Clough before the light goes
