Winter Hill

Memorial Stone: 100 years since reclaiming the public right of way
       Another wet day, very wet and windy in-fact! I had seen the mast on Winter hill from a distance many times, but today with Ian I visited the mast up close, and of course the trig point. We ascended Smithhills Moor and stopped at the shooting hut for a spot of lunch. Sadly we were only able to see perhaps 80ft of the total 1035ft. Our route for the return leg lay along Dean Ditch, the path was wet to say the least! It was a shame that the weather was so poor, and that I was unable to see the huge mast in all its glory. I shall have to go back, possibly on the bike up the private access road.
