Notes: After all the recent rain, I needed a walk on reasonably good paths today and I've been meaning to tick off Great Pinseat for a while, but the problem is its one of those awkward hills that doesn't lend itself easily to a 12-ish mile walk. So I needed to extend it a little bit. I chose to visit the Old Gang Smelt Mill, not the bit on the C2C path, down on the road, but the flue that runs up the side of Reeth High Moor, the chimney on the top and then drop down to see the monstrous peat store that supplied Old Gang Mill with its peat. So a rather wavy track was trod today - wherever possible using paths I'd not used before - and paths most people don't use, so it was very quiet, in fact I only saw 4 people all day and they were on the 400 yards or so of C2C path I had to use. The full slideshow is available below.
