Day 1 Kinder and Bleaklow

15 miles Edale to Torside

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.

No lives lost - not even a broken finger nail

  1. Fab day walk. Respect to Rob. I'm not planning on moving much today and he's got another 250 miles to do. Will be waiting eagerly for the next posts
