Walk Winter Hill 08/10/2017

Steve H. led a walk from Rivington old barn car park, up onto Rivington Pike where we took in the views and had elevenses. We then went to Pike cottage then E to Crooked Edge Hill then N on the access road to the aerials on top of Winter Hill. Then we went W over Noon Slack hill to the rough Belmont road here we had lunch. Then N across the B road at Hoorden Stoops, at Will Narr we turned W down to Yarwood reservoir and on the dam wall we had a coffee break. Then we went S to Rivington village where we could not get anyone into the locked stocks. S again under the Go Ape People we saw the folly of Liverpool Castle then N back to the cars. 14 of us and Chester the dog braved muddy slippy conditions. The morning was muggy, misty with a touch of drizzle now and then, the afternoon was warm andclear with some sun.
