I pretty much did this all back to front because didn’t have lots of time.
Sunday 12th March – Foot of Stoodley Pike to Mankinholes
Finished off this section that I’d not done the week before.
Sunday 12th March – Mankinholes to Bottomley
I got up and out early. Gorgeous Spring day, warm and sunny. Parked in Mankinholes. Walked down through the Top Brink pub car park where Carol and I went for our first meal out together in months on Friday (mine was great, hers wasn’t). Then a couple of km along the busy busy single track road to the Shepherds Rest pub and up across the hill contouring round. It’s not a featureless moorland section and most enjoyable for that! Got to Bottomley, turned round and went back the same way.
Saturday 11th March – Bottomley to Summit
I parked at Bottomley by the football pitch and walked the short steep bit to Summit. Good views along the valley. Walked back along the grubby main road.
