Lovely early morning walk between the showers, we were lucky as the heavy rain didn't arrive until after we finished the walk. We parked in the small carpark opposite the village hall in Broughton Mills and made our way up to here, pity Lickle Valley View Point had been archived as we could have grabbed it on the way up. Once here the cache was quickly located and a nice dry log signed, met a couple fell running as we set off for the next cache.Snakes7731/12/2015
