The Cloud - Marilyn Number 1303
After refreshing ourselves at Rushton Spencer's excellent Knot Inn, we parked just north of Timbersbrook for this easy final circuit, taking the Gritstone Trail path to the summit and returning via the escarpment trods.
The late afternoon views were excellent, if a little hazy - Jodrell Bank, just eight miles away, was only just visible.
Then it was back to Little Italy (in Timperley).
All in all an excellent trip during which we appear to have bagged 5 Travelodges, 27 Marilyns and 1 'sub Marilyn' or HuMP (hill with a HUndred Metre Prominence). I now need to look for a pencil to mark up, and update, Alan Dawson's book.
I'm sure there's more to follow when I've downloaded some photos and the data from my Garmin Gadget.
Bye for now...
