It was so very wet. Carol told me I would feel better if I went out but it didn’t work out that way. It’s not a long stretch at all and I wore all the gear but just got fed up with being out on my own on soggy paths, one bit was like walking down a river.
I did most of the section I’d planned but stopped slightly short of Mankinholes where there’s a bench at the foot of Stoodley Pike.
On the return run, I used the Pennine Way not the Pennine Bridleway and that was better underfoot.
