me near the top of the  Two lads
towards winter hill after the Two Lads
Old reservoir?
old mine?
look carefully at the bridge I am on it!
me running on stone- to practice running across  loose rock and stone
old mine remains near the winter hill mast  ?
old wooden walkway
old brickworks at back of the mast
old bricks found at old brickworks
me wet and muddy after running between the mast and the Pike
dad very wet and muddy   -my dad was waist deep LOL, we had to clean up in a stream otherwise my mum wouldn’t let us back in the house
dead sheep that got stuck in the mud you have to be careful on soft ground !
at last  the pike
4.26 miles , rough terrain, very soft ground due to rain  , -very boggy in places !, sunny
