April 1980 - Granny's Ramble and Bob's Saunter

Here are some more scanned slides and diary entries from April 1980.

On 20 April, five of us enjoyed a stroll around Over Haddon in the Peak District on a dull day.

Lunch was taken in the shelter of a wall near Youlgrave.

Nick tried to lay an egg.

He recovered later to both compose and then type out a diary entry:

I can't really add to that...

The following Sunday, 27 April, I enjoyed a 'saunter' in the South Pennines with Bob and Annie.

Bob is pictured here on stepping stones near Hebden Bridge.

We walked through the woodland of Hardcastle Crags, an area visited many times subsequently on both the 'Calderdale Hike' and the 'Calderdale Mountain Bike Marathon'.

We passed close to this disused mill.

My red pullover seems to have been superseded by an equally chunky blue one. These pullovers, knitted by Dot, were used over a period of many years. It's a shame that none survive to this day.

It was my turn to write the diary entry for 'Bob's Saunter' and I'm pleased to say that Nick's typing endurance wasn't really tested!

Next - an early Scottish backpacking trip. A quick glance at the slides is encouraging, so it's 'Happy Scanning' whilst I listen to the Olympic Games commentaries and the rain drums on the office window.
