Over the ladder stile and down to Hugh Lake Foot, through a herd of cattle, to the dismay of Catherine who was using her hands to blinker the sight!
The route to Shoveldown Longstone wasn’t obvious to anyone else but me, and the constant “Are we nearly there yet?” was beginning to grate a little, but once we had climbed up onto Thornworthy Tor for lunch, and I mentioned it was an hour from the reservoir to the Warren House Inn, everyone perked up a bit.
That was until I took them on a slight detour through the long grass to the Double Stone Row on Hurston Ridge. I turned to them, expecting them to see there faces lit up in appreciation but was met with a look that I’d seen the day before near Steng-a-Tor; better get to the pub quickly!
