Darwen Tower and Great Hill

Set off in reasonable conditions rom the village of Belmont.  Changeable weather en route, but thankfully made it back to the car before the real nasty stuff arrived.  Twelve and a half miles and a brief run with Brian, a truly inspirational guy and fellow Rucksacker Smile
