Took the kids up Win Hill on Sunday, setting off from Yorkshire Bridge and clambering up through the steep woodland path with regular rest stops for Haribo. My hidden agenda for the trip was to get a better sense of the lay of the land as I’m thinking of entering the Hope Wakes Fell race in a few weeks which involves legging it out from Hope and running 6 miles around and over Win Hill. Reading ‘Feet in the Clouds’ by Richard Askwith from the comfort of my own home has got me thinking I could and should be doing all kinds of reckless hill running…………we’ll see.
Here’s a few pics from our feast up top, the tough upward muddy hike through the trees was rewarded with honey and peanut butter sandwiches, choccy biscuits and good clear views of a blue Ladybower and far off into the Hope Valley. Toby was able to spot the hills that he’s walked on over the last few years whilst Rufus was happy to point out the tiny cars inching along the roads far beneath us.
