A murky start that was forecast to break into a nice day and so it did with short sleeves back! First visit to Stang Top Moor.

A murky start - the forecast was for improvement though

2 Summit.JPG
Foggy on summit, but I'm coming back here later and that bit of sun above suggests improvement could be on the way

4 Stang Top Moor.JPG
There's Stang Top Moor - where I'm heading next

5 Sculpture Trail.JPG
Entering Aitken Wood and the Sculpture Trail - there was a sign here saying the sculpture trail was closed but having come this far I decided to at least head to the top of he hill

6 Pendle clearing now from the summit.JPG
Pendle is clearing now as I look over from the top of Stang Top Moor

7 Sculpture.JPG
One of the sculptures - there's more to see here and I will come back but as I was wary today, I quickly bolted back the way I came

Aitken Wood has made the slopes of this hill nice

Descent to Black Moss Reservoirs through the woods

10 Pendle again.JPG
There's Pendle Hill again - looks good for when I get back there

11 Towards Ogden Clough.JPG
Heading into Ogden Clough - glorious now

12 Up Boar Clough.JPG
And then up via Boar Clough - the one way I hadn't been up Pendle and certainly one of the quietest

13 dales from Pendle.JPG
Yorkshire Peaks from the summit - t-shirt weather now

14 Descent with Bowland in view.JPG
Same route down as I first came up - Bowland hills ahead

15 What a difference.JPG
What a difference an hour or two makes!
