A trip to Preston railway station gave the opportunity for a
couple of walks in Lancashire.
A slightly blurred George on top of Pendle Hill (557m/1827ft) where the wind was
very strong and it was difficult to keep the camera steady enough for a photo.
The paved path makes the walk up from Pendle House easy, though the wooden parts
are very slippery when wet
Looking east to the Black Moss reservoirs and the village of Barley from the
slopes of Pendle Hill
George runs on ahead as we descend to the car
The sign points the way to Pendle Hill, whose top remains in the clouds
Later, Pendle Hill from the end of the track on Easington Fell
The summit cairn on Easington Fell (396m/1299ft above sea level)
It was still very windy, and keeping the camera still proved difficult. A view
to the west along Bradford Fell to Waddington Fell
Above the trees on Grindleton Fell, Pendle Hill disappears into what shortly
proved to be heavy rain clouds.
