Roger led us from Horwich End to Chinley via devious routes zig-zagging around the flanks of Eccles Pike. The walk took in excellent autumn views, iron age fortifications and an unexpected bridge club. The original plan was for a shorter walk to accommodate additional members, but they were unable to join on this occassion, so Roger threw in a few additional paths for the regular crew.
Autumn expressed in some fine Virginia creeper.
This is a bit of the Roosdyche which is a huge earthwork, possible an Iron Age fort. (Rather difficult to photograph as in total it’s about 400 metres long and 30 wide.
Some chickens had staged a coup. (Or it might be a modest reference to Mussorgsky.)
Quite a cold day, but it remained fine for a very enjoyable walk.
