Expeditions, Navigation, Guided Walks and Trekking
I am impressed with a blog I have started following, Mick goes out every day with his dog and records it in a daily blog on places and history, mainly of the North York Moors. It’s usually accompanied by a single photo, which means the picture is more considered and selected. Out and About
So, I’m going to start doing shorter, more focused posts from my out and about travels. It won’t be daily, but more frequent than currently. More of a considered Facebook Status update.
Here’s today’s picture. This is Belmont village and Reservoir, taken from Whimberry Hill on the east side of Winter Hill. From the hill, the view north is over the village and its water supply. This is the quiet part of the moors, most people going up from western Rivington side. As its winter, no Whimberry’s today, although even in season I have never found berries up there. It’s easy to get up this hill, there is a car park at the bottom, just below Wilton upper Quarries, home to some shorter and easier rock climbing than Wilton-1.
This is also just above the site of the Hurricane crash I researched a few years ago. WWII Hurricane Crash Site
Belmont village is also where the BMC NW area meetings are held in one of its lovely hostelries.
