We set off and made our way up the lane past the school towards Brackenbottom Scar, and straight away I recognised our previous walking route.

From the trig point, most people make their way down along the Pennine Way, but we’d already planned to walk to Plover Hill and then down onto Foxup Moor before turning south west to walk across Horton Moor and visit Hull Pot before returning to our car. The sun was lovely and warm, we were refreshed from lunch and thoroughly enjoying the afternoon.
It’s a bit boggy up there, but wasn’t really giving us too much trouble as we picked a route through the squelchy bits. Peter led, and being a gentleman, helped me over the occasional extra wide patch of boggy stuff. During an extra large step, I felt something in my foot give a painful crunch!
