Thursday 17th May 2007
Time was short today but it looked like being the best day of the week so I opted for a walk along the edges. The drizzle and low cloud at the start of the walk soon started to clear away and by the time I was heading back to the car there was even some sun starting to break through the cloud, something that we seem to have seen very little of for the last week.

limited, because of the trees, but step off the path and you get
I took a slight diversion today to visit the Hurkling Stone, one of many gritstone outcrops that can be found along the edges.
