It was a Wednesday morning and all was well as I left the hostel with a change of clothes and a pack up in my bag. The weather was dry but overcast, with a threat of rain but it wasn't long before I had to stop and change into shorts because it was too warm for trousers.
I walked into the village with the intention of visiting the Lead Mining Museum, but it was closed, it only opens on a Sunday. Shame, it might have been interesting, never mind, here are a couple of pics.
Time to leave Foulridge and follow the footpath alongside the Lower Reservoir.
And here is me, crossing a second wooden bridge.
I stopped for a bite to eat at Laneshawbridge and watched the traffic go by, gratefull that I no longer have to work and I can enjoy my freedom. After following a few more paths, I came to Colne Golf Course. Beware of flying golf balls, oh well, makes a change from flying bulls, ha ha.
It was a straight line walk back to the hostel after that, some of it along the Pendle Way, arriving just after 6pm. A total of 14.6 miles, and a cracking days walk. Only one rain shower which I managed to shelter from. A great day out.
