A walk to Shining Tor – the highest point in Cheshire

001

We met at the car park near Pym’s Chair on a very cold morning

003

So who was Pym? This might help.

006

We set off down the road – I wasn’t sure that losing all this height was such a good idea!

008

At the bottom of the hill we took a left turn along a track

013

We rounded a partially derelict farmhouse

014

This car seemed to have been parked up for some time!

015

The views were stunning

017

but there were only the sheep to share them with

019

and there were lots of them about

020

But there must be frogs about as well – and these had not gone unnoticed – were those Canada Geese tracks to the right. Do they feed on the spawn or do you think they just took a drink?

022

We took our break where a house once stood – and wondered who once lived here.

023

and envied them their view from their front door

025

Then onward and upwards as we regained all that height we had previously lost, and a bit more – in one short stretch

026

until we reached Shining Tor

029

with its splendid path along its ridge.

031

We took in views

032

in every direction

033

as we enjoyably sauntered along the gradual descent back to the car park.
