Walk: Wheelton Plantation, Solomons Temple, Roddlesworth Reservoirs, Hollinshead Hall, Adam's Delf, Great Hill, Calico Hall
Start Point: White Coppice Grid Reference: SD 619 190
Distance: 11 miles Ascent: 1,760 feet
Time: 4.25 hours
Weather: Dry but very cold with some ground frost
Comments: Taking advantage of the best weather of the week, I chose a variation on a local walk I have completed a few times. The path across Adam's Delf was particularly boggy in the upper section.
