I had intended to walk on Howden Moor and the Bleaklow Stones today, but a change of plan was needed after I mis-calculated the time needed to get there after dropping my son off at work. I hastily searched my database from my phone, looking for a suitable walk within driving distance of his work and this is the one I cam up with. Unfortunately I'd forgotten about the 1.5 mile section along the busy A54 which I would never write into any of my current walks! Anyway, the weather was fantastic, too hot towards the end if anything, but the walk up to Shutlingsloe was great as ever and the highlight of the whole walk. The rest was a rather dull plod around fields and lanes - not particularly inspiring I'm afraid.
