Walking Shoes And Walking Boots For My Birthday Present

It was my birthday last week (I’m now 56 – yikes!) and my sister offered to buy me a new pair of walking boots, since my old ones have finally fallen to bits after about 10 years of use. I’ve been distracted and hadn’t got round to telling her which ones I wanted. That turns […]

A Meander Round Hollingworth Lake

M & M were heading home but we had a sunny spell so they decided to postpone their journey for a couple of hours and drive us to Hollingworth Lake for a little walk. We called in at the Visitor Centre for lunch, then walked slowly round the lake looking at the birds and chatting. […]

Heptonstall and Widdop Walks

Maisie and Mal were up for the weekend and we fancied a stroll so we drove up to Heptonstall with Lisa and walked part of the way towards the top of Colden Clough via Lumb Bank, then retraced our footsteps and walked through the woods to Hell Hole Rocks, round the top of the quarry […]

It was a nice sunny day and I was going to walk up to Heptonstall with Lisa to have lunch in the cafe there. As soon as we set off, we realised that neither of us had enough money on us and there is no ATM in the village, so we went to one in […]

One Of Those Heptonstall Strolls

Nowt much to report, but I’m including it just to log the 30 minutes of exercise.

Pennine Way to Langfield Common

Lisa was off work and it was a sunny day so we decided to do a repeat of a walk we did in summer 2009 – Pennine Way reservoirs. As before, we caught the 900 bus up to Blackstone Edge, then walked down towards the White House pub, and turned right onto the Pennine Way, […]
