A Circular from Marsden via the bridleway to Little Moss and the Pennine WayMountainTerrier30/05/2020
Cycled from home and ascended by path from minor road to the south. Still restricted from travelling further afield by Coronavirus restrictions.Neil Midgley12/05/2020
Surprisingly impressive hill at the head of the Colne valley that we'd had our eyes on for a while. Could be nicknamed the Marsden Matterhorn. From Slaithwaite with Miranda, 9 degrees, overcast, south-westerlies, mostly dry. Walked along the cut to the visitor centre, then took the minor road to the A62, crossed and took the footpath opposite. Started up a track to a small gate on the right which led to a lovely little path that eventually follows the western edge of the hill to the fine summit. Driving rain added to the feeling of being in real hill country. Returned by same route. 14km, 3 hours 20 mins.Wycombe Wanderer07/03/2020

Big day of Pennine 400m tops. Started at 5am in Sheffield. 7am started up the 'nose' following Heritage Walk sign, under dreary scudding cloud = bleak but strangely appealing.Just a 15 min climb. Below ground lies the famous 5km long Standedge canal tunnel. Thomas Telford stepped in during construction to sort out badly aligned digging from opposite ends ( hence bends inside the tunnel). Deliberately built with no tow path ( cheaper) and so relied on leggers to walk the boats through the 5 km, who must have developed huge calf muscles,and probably bad backs. The later 3 rail tunnels cleverly used short cross tunnels to remove waste by the canal.Chris Pearson14/08/2011
