~January on Pendle~
1st / 8th January 2017
We're at it again. On New Year's Day, the sun was shining, but one week later it's a different matter with the whole area shrouded in mist.

In The Mist
On Saturday 7th January the mist was already in situ in most of Lancashire and here's a couple of views from a walk along the canal.
08:30hrs Colne to Preston
The train has just left Brierfield and is heading past the "Prairie Fields" en route to Burnley and beyond.
"Oliver Ings" Bridge
Leeds / Liverpool Canal, Brierfield
12:30hrs Colne to Preston
The same train, four hours later in somewhat brighter conditions. Molly and I walked from home, down to the canal and along to Barrowford. And then back again.
The "misty" walk was my 400th "recorded" climb of Pendle Hill. Sadly (or maybe not) I did not keep records prior to 1994.
