Roddlesworth Reservoirs, Tockholes Plantations, Pimms,
||SD 619 190
||Intermittent sun and cloud
||Taking a well-known route I
was pleasantly surprised to have sunny spells for most
of the day, though this was the coldest day of the year
so far. The ground was rather damp due to the recent
rain but the extra water in River Roddlesworth gave the
opportunity to try out different settings on the new
camera. On returning to the car I found that other
walkers had suffered 20 minutes of hail in the
Anglezarke area - pleased I didn't head in that
