Notes: The weather forecast was a bit grim for this morning's walk. I've seen Pendle Hill from a distance many times, but I'd always dismissed it as being too remote from other hills to make a decent walk from it. In the end I plotted a route between four trig points and the summit and 12 miles seemed long enough to justify. The rain came for only 30 minutes or so, but threatened for much longer so I spent an uncomfortably sweaty couple of hours in the Paramo today. The path up Ogden Clough is lovely and even with no views because of the mist I really enjoyed the climb up to the summit. A great hill and I will return I think, to enjoy the views.
