Set of pix from Whitebear way2011

2 Lads hill, supposed to be  the burial graves of a Saxon King's sons. 

Two Lads Hill, But there are 3 Cairns

Looking Back Rivington hill in the background.

Looking back, the pursuit is on!

Reebok Stadium in the distance

Winter Hill mast

Looking from the mast at Winter Hill back towards Belmont. A good place for racing cyclists to train

From Winter Hill, it can be pretty desolate at times

Its a big thing!

The main mast, We thought it was swaying, but it was us!

The memorial is on the wall

A Radio Ham's dream

Past the mast

Looking towards Hordern Stoops, but we don't go that way its a dead drop off the edge!

From Hordern Stoops, looking up Winter Hill

Wellington Bomber Memorial looking towards Winter Hill, looks a long way - it is

Anglezark Resevoir - Adlington is 2 miles away as the crow flies, Yeah right.
Started at Adlington Scout hut, crossed the Railway and the A6 and then the Leeds Liverpool Canal. Along the Canal, Up two Lads and then Winterhill, Rivington Castle stuck in somewhere, great big circle round, find canal and back home. Not so tricky nav, found yet a new route from Jepsons gate and then seemed to forget the last bit. Went with Kyle, a bit of running in the middle, good pace. Met some old acquaintances, back home for pie and peas. A seriously good day and quite reasonably quick. Will probably do this as an unsupported run at the end of the summer. Thanks to Adlington scouts for a really good day out.
