Went on a Weets circular today as a benchmark for my physio. We went straight up Folly Lane to the top then round by Duckpond and over the moor on to Weets Side and then up to the trig. Five minutes enjoying the view then back down via the ridge and the old Bronze Age track. It was a lovely day and we only needed a base layer and a light fleece. A bit of a breeze on the top but very pleasant nevertheless, lots of sunshine.

Interesting link Tiz thanks for posting.

It would have been criminal today not to have gone for a walk, we set off after a bit of dinner. Taking one of our normal escape routes we went up Moorgate and then Folly Lane to just below Standridge, into the field over to Lower Standridge, over Gillians beck and out onto Lane Bottom. We past one of our housing mistakes in the shape Quarry House and the other cluster of developed properties at the head of the lane. We could have bought the entire site for £28,000 30 years ago but didn't. Onward past or mistake and out onto the moor, we exited half way up and crossed over to Lister Well. Up onto the top of the bridle path and then leftover the moor again and out into the pasture again to hit the green lane above Copy Nook. We descended to Lane Head and then went down Salterforth drag to the newly reopened Anchor where it would have been rude not to stop for refreshment. A pint a Jennings Golden whatever ale apiece went down very well. We returned along the canal as far as the marina and then back home via Kelbrook Road. A nice walk, just over 5 miles, warm in the wall to wall sunshine but with as slight chill in the odd bit of breeze, T shirt and light layer one fleece only required. Just less than 600 ft of climb in I hour 47min, 1h 22min of actual walking.

I always read these accounts Ian and would love to be able to do it. As a matter of fact I think I could but as you get older you get less adventurous (at least I do!) and I always have it in the back of my mind that one of my knees might let me down on top of Weets! Keep posting them, I am with you in spirit.
