Sunday walk 22nd July 2018 report

Thanks to Ali and Sean for joining me at Grindon for what turned out to be a lovely 11.8 mile circuit. After a brief stop for a seesaw in the playground at Grindon we set off north for Warslow, where a few minutes of map consultation allowed time for the pub to open (coffees only were consumed). The route stayed mostly high, with fine views, and lunch was taken on the way to Upper Elkstone before heading south to Butterton Moor End. The return to Grindon did throw up a navigational conundrum, but allowed us to touch a (literally) roadside trig point before the final path from Grindonmoor Gate.
The sun stayed behind cloud for most of the walk, which was probably as well because it got hot for the last section and we were dry on reaching the car park. Here Sean pulled out a camping stove from his car and provided a very welcome brew to round off a grand day out.
