|Walk:||Cuerden Valley, Whittle Spinney, Denham Hill, Hough Hill, Top o'th Lane, Leeds & Liverpool Canal, Croston Farm, Whittle-le-Woods, Cuerden Valley|
|Distance:||9 miles||Ascent:||940 feet|
|Weather:||Sunny spells and hail showers|
|Comments:||Most of the walk was enjoyable on a cold and bright day. However, the section from the canal north of Moss Lane Farm was virtually impossible to walk on due to the ground being churned up by cattle. I have had problems in this area before and will avoid this path in future.|

I manage to capture an ETPS plane - possibly from the Empire Test Pilot School fleet
The sheep quickly take their leave as I approach
Geese . . .

Waiting for a bus? No, just used it to put my overtrousers on during a hail shower - which has now stopped!!
