Big B******* Walking club, On a week of Overtime, there can be no rest...

 And so, following the epic fail of trying to go to Langsett Reservoir last week, we set out again this week, this time with regular maps as well as postcodes with which to guide us, and amazingly...

We found it...

Langsett isn't much further down the road than Underbank, but it is designed to walk around and provides a reasonably scenic route as well as a good degree of up and down so the walk doesn't get too leisurely.  We found a number of interesting things on the walk...


High into the pass, or into the long dark of Moria...


Yep, avoid Moria...
 

Although the Watcher, could have been watching...


It may not look far on the banking to the left, but it really is...


At least there's a wall to stop you falling straight in...


Although neither of us wanted to meet the bird that made that birds nest...


Or find out what was re-enacting Predator but using trees instead of people...


A good bridge (yes, we always find one) over the stream.


Which showed us the path along the river that was (today) to be denied to us...


And no easy way down on the other side of the bridge...


 Meaning back up the hill (Damnit...) to the high path...
 

And so we found an opportunity for Cmdr Swift to practise his druidic talents...


Proof of his tree bending can be found by all those going here in future.


Although we left before the Kaiju that did this came back...


To retrieve the snack it had clearly left here the last time it came through.


Poetry...for me to put my arse upon...There's something not so poetic about that I think...


And an excellent Sunset...


No matter where you look at it from...


And the spotted cafe beloved of those watching the Tour...

So we couldn't go all the way round because the path was closed both ways on the far side of the bridge, but we're returning next week, and we'll have the whole thing this time, so more next week...
