The walk started at 15:30hrs from Barley car park. The waterworks is slowly being converted to living units, I hesitate to use the term houses. Barley is in the shade with Aiken Wood on Stang Top Moor enjoying the later afternoon sunlight.

That's the cloud that was casting a shadow over me and Barley. I'm on (possibly) the quickest route to the top from Barley, which goes over Barley Hill and passes Buttock Farm.
