Two very good friends have won a magazine competition to walk the Pennine Way, which is a 270 mile trek from the Peak District, through 3 national parks and over the border into Scotland. They’ll be doing this in just over a week and won the competition because they said they’d like to star-jump all the way…well, at ever place of interest, at least.
Today, I’m joining them for one of the shorter sections of the walk…
Today’s section of the walk started in the very picturesque town of Hebden Bridge, before heading up over the moors to the equally pretty village of Haworth, 13 miles away.
We rested at ‘Top Withens’, reputed to be the setting for ‘Wuthering Heights’ by Emily Bronte, where we ate some very ample portions of Bakewell Tart and were attacked by either bats or pigeons. We weren’t entirely sure which. It all happened very quickly and it was dark inside the remains of Top Withins!
Good luck, chaps!!!
