When he knew I was coming on this walk Dave gave me a copy of Alfred Wainwright's Pennine Way Companion. In the comfort of our living room yesterday I was reading Wainwright's sobering warming that "lives have been lost on Bleaklow". This is also the stretch of the pennine way that defeated Simon Armatage (although contrary-wise he half planned not to finish it anyway). So I was very glad to have had Sarah walking with me today.
This is the first signpost and the start of the Pennine way. Dave, and Jane bidding Sarah and me a very fond farewell.
