Anne grew up in this area and knows it well so who better than to be on the moors walking with......

I've added a couple of pictures below from a recent walk as well as a snapshot view of the start of pork hill as it passes our campsite...

My Daughter and family will be arriving tomorrow for a short stay with us and we are both looking forward to seeing them all....the weather forecast is looking quite good too......

Walking up towards Cox Tor
