Last of a circuit of 3 Humps from Chinley station, after Eccles Pike and Whaley Moor. A satisfying walk!IanHHill21/07/2018
On Peep o'Day- Chinley Churn- Chinley- Hull End- South Head- Mt. Famine walk with Pete. Start at 1110 to allow rain to clear and cloud base to lift. It would be more satisfying to do the walk from Chinley but the high start gave us shorter options if needed. We missed a more direct route to Hull farm which would have been preferable. Summit very interesting, on top of a gritstone crag, long abandoned, interesting quarries below.pwheeler13/03/2018
