MTL Callis Bridge to Mankinholes 05/03/17

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.

Last time here Chris and I had a picnic, on a bike ride.
Good old Stoodley Pike
This is London Road, it doesn’t go there.
They were listening to a play on the radio!! Yes, really!

MTL Jack Bridge to Callis Bridge 19/02/17

This short stretch packs a punch of height gain, 315m in just over 3km. I walked down to Callis Bridge and back from the New Delight, taking some delight in parking in their car park. It started off dry and then got gradually more drizzly and there was thick fog on the tops on the way home.
