An early start and the tents were soaking from dew and condensation, but no rain in the night and the morning dawned beautiful and sunny - the best day of the three. We were aiming for the 11:50 train out of Marsden to take us back to Manchester and we set a steady pace over Black Hill and found a lovely tea van at Wessenden Head where we had a second breakfast and a welcome hot tea. Then it was down between the reservoirs into the town and the delayed train into Manchester. The tram system confused us for a while until we made our separate ways to different destinations. A great weekend backpacking with great company and another 25 miles of the Pennine Way ticked off.
