4th August 2014
With no incentive other than the weather, this walk just happened to coincide with the centenary of the start of The Great War. The liberty we enjoy to live our lives the way we do has been earned by past generations and this should not be forgotten.
With a start time of 19:20hrs, the walk started from the roadside and proceeded up the steps.
That's the view towards Skipton and beyond.
Dog 'n me just pottered around waiting for the crowd to disperse.
It would be tempting to say that the view is the same as it would have been 100 years ago. But that's not true as the trig point would not have been there and the stones used to encircle the summit were probably in a pile and I think that this is an ancient "tumulus", there may be bodies buried underneath! Also the untidy scar, the result of thousands of clumsy feet would not have been so pronounced.
The "Jack Russell" was plonked on the trig for a souvenir photo.
Cyclist on Pendle
How appropriate that the cyclist should have his head bowed in this manner. But wait! He was sending a text, not saying a prayer.

Four Lane Ends
1hr 20mins on this occasion. Really great evening to be up on the fells, sunny and warm with no wind.
