However all was sorted and we enjoyed an excellent lunch where 3 of us had "Rag Pie" This is a rolled suet pudding filled with mince and was delicious. The weather was not kind so we only had a short walk with Barney in the afternoon but it was strenuous enough for me as it involved climbing even further up the hills behind their converted barn. We were last here with Petroc in 2007 when we climbed the Rochdale canal to join them for their 50th wedding anniversay celebrations.
Monday morning we drove down to Diggle to the south portal of the Standedge tunnel to meet up with John & Fiona on Epiphany. The reason for this trip is Geoff's desire to try the tunnel and my positive desire NOT to try the tunnel. An invitation from John & Fi to join them could not be missed!
Impressive gates at the entrance
