The lower end of Winnats Pass, Win Hill in the distance:
Walk stats: Distance: 9.9 miles. Climb: 1684'.
Time 6 hours 11 minutes. On the move walking average: 2.0 m.p.h. Overall walk average: 1.6 m.p.h.
Group: Martyn and Mike.
Another good day for walking, but it seemed as though everyone else thought so too, particularly around MamTor. Mam Tor was capped in a cloud, but thankfully it had cleared by the time that we reached the trig point.
We had good views all day and valleys like Cave Dale and passes like Winnats Pass are always impressive.
Birds were far and between today, but included: Blue tit, Mallard, Carrion crow, Raven and Jackdaw.
Lunch was taken at Castleton before setting off for Cave Dale.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Cheshire Cheese in Frodsham, where the only cask ale on offer was Theakstons Bitter, but even that tasted good. despite having to suffer watching West Ham v Man U. Alas Man U had equalised by the time we got home!
