Roddlesworth Reservoir, Pimms,
||SD 619 190
||Sunny with a cold wind
||With a fine day forecast it
was time to get out for a walk and a familiar route was
just the job. It was a pleasant day with frequent sunny
spells but the wind was pretty cold in exposed areas.
The ground wasn't too bad considering the rain and snow
melt of a week or two ago - apart from when I went
slightly wrong and found a boggy section!

My usual 'elevenses' stop at Solomon's Temple

Lots of sheep out today feasting on turnips
The sun highlights a silver birch
Crossing Rake Brook
Pimms provides shelter for lunch
Snow is still evident on the flanks of Winter Hill
It's just over a mile from Winter Hill on the left to Rivington Pike
on the right
Great Hill - it's all downhill from here!
