After allowing the mini-blizzard to pass, Chris and I set off at a very civilised time from High Storrs road, determined to at least have a bit of exercise, after my cancelling the Roaches/Lud’s church walk yesterday. We progressed along the Porter valley with all the other Sunday walkers/cyclists/joggers, and after a brief detour into the fascinating Shepherd Wheel, continued towards open countryside, gently climbing above the snow-line. All the trees showed very beautifully from which direction the snow had come, so after a few photographs, we decided it was time for a coffee stop at the alpaca centre café. Then with very threatening dark clouds approaching, it seemed sensible to also call in at the nearby Norfolk Arms for hot mulled wine [unfortunately not being served today] but we stayed anyway, entertained by some scary sports at the Winter Olympics. Then back to Sheffield, via muddy paths and the allotments, to tea at home, before the next blizzard arrived. Just over 4 hours and 7 miles – just like a good Thursday walk!
