If you have been following my last few posts you will know an ascent of Pendle Hill, 557 m, has alluded me. Luckily I phoned my walking cousin the pieman this morning suggesting an outing, he was going to be in Clitheroe today, so a hasty meeting was arranged. Would you believe it but his bus broke down? We were delayed in setting off from Downham, but that wasn’t a problem as we only needed a short afternoon to climb Pendle.
Today I had a purpose apart from said ascent, I needed to meet up with the pieman to arrange a forthcoming trip to Le Chemin de R L Stevenson and needed to check out my new phone’s camera and ability to post from it. Trying to drag myself into this century’s technology!
Our walk up and down Pendle proved no problem.
We descended off the Big End Of Pendle via a different track than usual, taking us into the little valley down past Clay Farm and back to Downham. Our arrangements proved more complicated, and I’m not sure of the phone, but if you are able to read this all must have worked. Actually, I tweaked it a bit on the laptop. The pics were just OK, but I had difficulty inserting them into the post on the phone, will get that sorted.
