Region: Peak District
Notes: An early morning walk around some old favourite Peak District tops, extended to include Cats Tor. Started out grey and grim with a slight drizzle and quite cold, but steadily improved as the day went on. Feeling quite fit now, which, with only a week to go before I head to Scotland is a good thing! Sun on Cheeks Hill was the highlight of the walk.
