Snow fell overnight 26th / 27th December and Molly had her longest ever breakfast walk - 90 minutes in the snow around the area known as Marsden Heights, close to Nelson Golf Course. These photos are taken the day prior to the Pendle walk in the title and that which is reported below.

The early sun lights up Pendle Hill and the open area where scores of dogs are walked comes back into view. Another view of the early sun is taken over High Withens Farm.

We could have travelled further today, but why bother when this is so close to home? Busy!
