Walked from Bolton to Chorley on Saturday, stayed over then walked back on the Sunday, 15 miles each way. It was my brother in-law's stag weekend and that's what he wanted to do. Stopped at a pub for food and half a dozen pints on the way there and same on the way back. Had a meal and beers at night in Chorley. Great weekend, great laugh and great scenery.
This is not long after we set (from the chimney in the middle distance). That's Manchester in the far distance to the right.
Winter Hill was still smouldering in parts.
Ground was scorched to fuck as we made our way to the mast.
Yarrow reservoir looking quite low with winter hill from the other side in the background.
It lashed it down most of the way back on Sunday.
Last stag do I went on was 3 days in Hamburg in April. Felt about 100 times better this week than I did after that. I can cope with middle aged stag weekends if they are like this.
