This is the on-line journal of a small ill-defined group of mostly geriatric runners who share a love of the fells. It also covers a sub-group, best described as drinkers with a running problem, who struggle to combine dwindling athletic ability with an increasing thirst for cheap alcohol. A sort of "Last of the Summer Whine" (sic) in Walshes. Posting limited to registered contributors, but comments welcome.
A good outing with EtU and KLM covering eleven miles or so. Out to the Trespass Stone (where else) and the path past the shooting hut to Winter Hill Summit. Down to Georges Lane and then to Horderns before taking the diagonal to the fire road. Then a great little path shown to us by KLM from the fire road beneath Spitlers which took us virtually in a straight line through the old ruined farmsteads to Wilcock’s Farm and then along the edge of Dean Wood and in. A good test of my ankle which only complained on the descents towards the end. A couple of pics here, but the best of the heather here
