Here is Shelagh, partway up looking over our little enclave in the village.
A little further...views not great....LOTS of mud underfoot.
Poor Richard....that hill is not easy for hungover chaps...
But the views start to look good soon. The big "Blot on the Landscape" is the Castleton Cement Works a large and valued local employer but not the prettiest addition to the Hope Valley.
If you just shift the camera a couple of inches to the left though - the lovely village of Bradwell nestles in the folds of its valley unhindered by nasty cement works!
At the top the view towards Shatton and Bamford
Rich looking a little happier now we're on the downward stretch.
It's a steep hill...look, proof!
The sun appeared just briefly on the way down. This is the view towards Win Hill (on the right) and Lose Hill (on the left).
Aaaah, my lovely Richard with Win Hill in the background (and Minty snuffling around somewhere in the undergrowth).
