Burnhead to Bardon Mill

Basically just a quick dash back to the car in the rain, picking up a couple of trig points on the way. The wall was empty again, probably because of the pouring rain this time and the fact that I was out before the sun rose. It rained pretty much all the way back to Bardon Mill, and I was glad to reach the car. One final long section to do now, over the Wall and up to KY and a couple of smaller ones to fill the gaps behind me.
