17 05 2008 - The South Pennine Challenge - (A PERSONAL RECORD)


Mytholmroyd 7.40am and waiting for someone


Here he comes at last


Looking down on Mytholmroyd


Where's the sun?


Stoodley Pike in the distance


He can't stop dancing


Summit of Manshead Hill


Cairn on Manshead Hill


Greenwood Clough


A glimpse of Baitings Reservoir


The bottom of Greenwood Clough


Stile council


Baitings Reservoir


The first checkpoint near the reservoir


Climbing towards Rishworth Moor


These inept walkers had missed the left turn across the footbridge and had to return sheepishly


That's the way to do it!



The Aiggin Stone - an ancient way marker on the old packhorse road between Rochdale and Halifax


Littleborough in mist


Nearing the A58


The second checkpoint after 12.5 miles and the end of the challenge for me - though I did walk another 6 miles back down into Mytholmroyd via Crag Vale (after a pint of course!)


Refreshments near The White House


Along the canal


Some flat walking at last


And then some more climbing


Higher and higher


But still no sunshine


21.5 miles done


And some still have enough strength to eat at the end
