Walk – Callis Wood, Kilnshaw Lane, Weasal Hall

I went for a hilly stroll in the sunshine with my pal Lisa instead of cycling today.

We set off to do our usual Callis Wood – Horsehold walk, but decided to extend it a little since conditions were so pleasant.

We took the Pennine bridleway up to Kilnshaw Lane. I noticed that the bridleway has been partially resurfaced which should make it a lot better to use after a period of rain. Before, it was often a muddy quagmire which was unpleasant for walkers and mountain bikers. I don’t suppose horse-riders are too bothered about mud though.

Spring lambs were out in force…

It was a toss-up between returning to town via Weasal Hall or Old Chamber – we chose Weasal Hall.

A quick visit to the shops was followed by a slow visit to the cafe at ‘Innovation’. We had a coffee each, and shared a buttered toasted currant teacake. We almost gave way to temptation to stay for ‘seconds’ but managed to resist and head for home.
