This section between Mankinholes and Standedge fits all my associations with the word "Pennine" - desolate, grey moorland and bog intersected by the M62 under a glowering sky! Still, it's not actually raining and despite the mist, it's a well-trod path that is easy to follow.
I make it to Standedge in record time and spend a lovely evening with a friend's parents. Thanks Mr & Mrs Blakeborough!
What made me smile today:
The 200-odd sheep who mistake me for a farmer come to feed them and run down the moors to bleat at me in the mist. Quite a spooky effect.
Brian's tea van and a hot mug of tea and a slice of swiss roll in the middle of nowhere. He's a lovely man - he even gave me a free cake for the rest of the journey!
