It seemed only recently that I'd been up Pen-y-ghent, but having checked my records when I returned home...it was last January! Time fly's when you're having fun :-)
Poor light today so the images are nothing special, just a record for me really...
|Pen-y-ghent from Horton Bridge
|Having walked up the lane past the school and through Brackenbottom, once on Brackenbottom Scar the view opens up and Pen-y-ghent starts to look rather closer.
|Looking back down the "nose" over Gavel Rigg and beyond to Pendle Hill.
|Just an hour to reach the top, and over in the distance...Plover Hill, my next target. You soon leave the crowds behind when you leave the main drag here.
|After the recent dry weather I expected the path across to Plover Hill to be dryer than it was...I just managed to do it with dry feet in my Inov8's...lots of dodging about to achieve it though.
|Having had a snack behind the summit wall out of the chilly wind I descended beside the wall to the Foxup Moor track, passing these boulders on the edge. Ingleborough in the distance.
|Along the Foxup track and the next sight of note...Hull Pot. Lots of new stones have been brought down by Hull Pot Beck. I was told that earlier this year that it had filled Hull Pot completely!
