4 of us met in the rain at Low Bradfield.
As we set off the rain had become quite light.Half way up the hillside it had stopped.So the traverse along the ridge top from Cliffe House Farm to High Bradfield was completed with commanding views.Passing through the churchyard we stopped at the flood grave of the Tricksett family.
We then passed the ancient Bailey Hill and traversed below the Agden Rocher crags before descending Agden Side to the edge of Agden Reservoir.From here we climbed to Wilkin Hill where we found a dead mole!Arriving at the path below Mortimer Road the decision was taken to stay high and cross Bradfield Moors to Thornseats Plantation and the Wentworth Fitzwilliam Forest.
By now the rain was steady and heavy with a strengthening wind-but shelter was at hand once in the woods with less mud too.
Emerging from the woods by the path down to Brogging we found a dead hare lying by the parked cars which Geoff deftly threw into the adjacent field.
Once past Brogging we crossed the Strines overflow and stopped for lunch by the trees above.
From here it was an easy walk along fields above Dale Dike,through the adjacent wood and back to Low Bradfield.
Not the best of days,but with variable rather than constant rain and misty views it was nevertheless worth the effort.
Thanks to those who came and your company.
