Hi Jill,
Climbed yesterday with Paul Evans. He's doing some photo work for the new lancs guidebook, so I suggested that we could try to hit some of the crags they need material for with the club. He's given me a list of crags which I'll share with u by email if you give me an address
If we can give Paul some dates when we'll be at these venues he'll rock up and take some shots.

Hi Jill nice to hear from you.  We are planning to start walking at 10am and I recon the full walk should take around 5 hours with and option of cutting it short so you should be ok. We've got a meeting on Wednesday at the Waterloo in Bury, I can take a map down for members to have a look at the route options. Regards Derek

The conversation continued and the next thing I knew we were committed !

The following day we rose at…

Man Versus Horsepower

Man verses Horse

Saturday night a post came through via Whatsapp about a Mob MTB ride on following morning buthe forecast was for a winter front to push through turning to rain later did nothing not the most inspiring. Awoke 6.30 and peered out of the window expecting the worst but it wasn't that bad so by 7am l was up and breakfasting but still unsure whether to join the boys. Having Ridden up past Tottington to Holcombe for 9am there was no sign of anyone so a quick check of the phone…
