From the A53, by Flash and across the moors.

It was sunny when we left Macc, but we entered the low clouda s we drove past the Cat & Fiddle and it looked as though we were in for a

wet walk.

It was misty and still raining as we set out from the cars. We first headed down a valley south of theA53.

008

We had a good view of the neighbouring farm lower in the valley

009

We started to climb up hill

011

Passing a house with a well in its garden

012

In the distance you could just see the sun starting to break through

013

Wild flowers bordered the fast flowing stream

014

Wood anemones were dotted all around

015

We utilised agricultural trailors as improvised seating for our break

016
018

The view from our seated position was splendid

019

Renewed, we took the path towards Flash

023

The horses took little interest in our passing.

024

This took us out onto the moors.

026
027

Up here the daffodils were late and still in flower

028

Passing the huts where clay pigeon shooting took place

029

Now the sky was almost clear

031

As we made our way to the rocks

034

Stopping briefly to look back the way we had come

035

and also out in the other direction

037

Before we arrived at our highest point, where people posed for photos.

040

Then out across Axe Head moor. Where you had to watch your step to avoid getting soggy feet.

041

or the black pools or the grouse underfoot

042

Then finally dropping down towards the cars, by which time we were all quite warm and the rain was a distant memory.
