Pendle Hill – Easter Sunday 31st March

We set off in clear, cold conditions.  Additional layers required nearing the summit at 1,827 ft the run in from near Whalley gave us just over twelve miles over well walked paths with good views of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.

This substantial shelter was erected in 1983 on the Pendle Hill Plateau – a popular lunch stop with walkers

No idea what this is – at one of the farms on the way down boiler? incinerator?
